Saturday 6th August was a proper summer’s day, blue sky from dawn ’til disk – with just a tiddly bit of summer cloud. The DPA had its usual stand, again, inside the big craft marquee …..
We were alongside an old friend from several shows over recent years ……….
By the time Berni and I arrived, the table was already prepared, so a quick tour outside revealed the location of the liquid refreshment tent – right beside us. As the photograph below shows, the ground was quiet …..
Let the folk dancing begin …..
There was quite a few in crowd around the dancing area …..
Some watched from the beer tent …..
There is always a variety of stands, tents, gazebos etc …..
Another general scene …..
View towards the combined beer and performance marquee …..
You may not believe this …..
A closer look ….. Let’s jump the broomstick …..
I have forgotten the name of this Morris group – they were on before Old Speckled Hen – that gives you some idea of the nature of this show – everyone having fun!
I couldn’t resist saving the best ’til last …..
All in all, it was a good day, and the sales of books, maps, leisure wear, Christmas cards and calendars made some profit for the DPA funds. All in all, a proper summer’s day.
