Dear Friends

The 10th 11th and 12th of June 2022 will be the 95th time Thaxted  have hosted a weekend of dancing* and 100 years since Letchworth first came to dance in Thaxted. We hope to offer informal dancing on the Friday night, coach and or walking tours of the beautiful local area with pub stops, dancing and a lunch, followed by the procession with massed dancing before the feast.   more dancing and the evening will close with the haunting and beautiful Abbots Bromley Horn dance by the Thaxted s Morris men.  On Sunday another procession up the hill for the church service ( for the spiritually inclined) and yet more dancing until a barbecue lunch. A relaxing Sunday afternoon in the Margaret street gardens social dancing and mingling for all that want to stay the afternoon.

We at Thaxted Morris men would like to invite applications by the 1st of April from all Ring sides regardless of the gender profile of dancers or musicians. All will be welcome. This is a change from the past as all clubs change and evolve. We believe our festival should be fully inclusive and we would appreciate your support on this matter. Numbers will be limited so please make your application early to avoid disappointment: contact me on revansandson [at] sky [dot] com

Outdoor and indoor camping will be offered ( indoor camping may be mixed) cost will be less than £95 for the full monty, a day rate for Saturday will be arranged at a later date.

With the present climate of covid risk and regulations we reserve the right to change the event at short notice if we feel it is necessary for safety.

Kind regards

The Thaxted Morris Men
