Chippenham Folk Festival 2013

Summertown made their second appearance at Chippenham Festival on May 26th. We performed a lot of our Wheatley dances, and found some more archaeological morris dancers at the pub! Splendid.

Mr Hemmings Day of Dance – May 11th 2013

Summertown had a lovely but chilly day dancing at Abingdon at Mr Hemmings Day of Dance. After dancing/drinking our way to the Market Place, we took part in the massed dance, before dancing back along Ock Street.  It was great to meet some local sides and those from further afield! There’s a nice mention of us on the Abingdon Blog and check out the youtube video for aerial footage (we’re the ones in blue)!
