We visited this magical village which was home to Dylan Thomas for a highly enjoyable evening dance out with Carreg Las Border Morris and Tipyn o Bopeth Welsh Dancers. Sadly Heb Enw Border Morris could not attend due to COVID.
The extreme, blistering heat earlier in the week gave way to more manageable temperatures on Wednesday leading to a perfect evening with demonstrations of the different dance styles of the Welsh dancers (gentle courtly dances), raucous Border dancing, and all round Cotswold and Welsh Morris.
The Fountain pub was planning on closing early, but thankfully stayed open long enough for us to slake our thirsts with the very excellent Felinfoel Double Dragon which went down extremely well!
Sweyns Ey started off with Field Town British Grenadiers/Skirmish, and finished with Y Caseg Eira Nantgarw, whilst in between these, several dances drawn from Fieldtown, Adderbury and Bampton were done. Of course, Bonnie Green closed the evening.
Great to be dancing again with friends from west Wales, and hopefully we will repeat the gig next year!
