Whittlesey Straw Bear Festival 2015

Whittlesey Straw Bear 2015

Better late than never! In January we were pleased to return to Whittlesey for our third Straw Bear Festival.

After an industrious Friday night in the pub putting the final touches to our new kit, we were pleased to debut it on several dancers on Saturday. Well done to squire Fi and her mum for their hard work making our smart new tunics!

We followed the bear (and the adorable baby bear) in a procession to the town centre, then spent the rest of the cold but sunny day dancing at spots around Whittlesey and catching up with other teams and folky friends.

You can see more photos from the day in our Flickr stream. Many thanks to the Straw Bear organisers for another great festival, and we hope to return in 2016.
