CRY MORRIS FOR ENGLAND & ST. GEORGE!

Lots of St. George’s Day events taking place all over the country including Loughborough where I’ll be dancing with Bare Bones border morris team. It’s not the first time I've danced time in public, but still a nerve wracking experience!Sue Kendrick morris dancer

What the heck! If St. George can take on a dragon, what’s a bit of public skipping in comparison! You can catch Bare Bones outside the Town Hall on Saturday, 23rd April from 12.00 p.m.

If you can’t make it, plenty of other events around the locality! Here’s list:
