On Monday evening we joined Thames Valley MM at Marney's Village Inn, Thames Ditton. It was a glorious summer evening, just before a break in the weather and the two sides danced before a small audience in the pub's garden. Thanks to Lesley for the action photos of Kingston Spring Grove Morris dancing Young Collins, Bidford.

On Monday evening Kingston Spring Grove Morris danced in the road outside the Albion pub. Bathed in the late summer evening setting sunlight we ran through some of our wide ranging repertoire of Cotswold dances with enthusiastic response from those sitting in the gardens of this ale house. Quite a few of our audience were persuaded to join in a Bonny Green Garters dance before we stood down and enjoyed a last beer.

It was rather cloudy and warm on Monday evening, (the term muggy might seem appropriate) as members of Kingston Morris gathered by the Thames at the Ram public house. There was the threat of rain as we began to dance to a seemingly indifferent youngish audience. Three young boys insisted in continuing playing some pops songs on a small but fairly loud player. We danced on defiantly. However, the atmosphere of the evening was transformed by the enthusiastic response of a large group of drama students from Kingston College relaxing in the square post exams. Their cheers seemed infectious and were taken up by many of the people sitting at the tables of the Ram. The three young guys moved off and we picked up the level of our performance. Several of the students joined us and were taken through a mid-session Bonny Green Garters dance. Some of them were obviously students of song and dance and picked up the Morris movements rather easily. We followed this with several more dances closing with a vigorous Vandals of Hammerwich. The threatened rain had stayed off and the crowd had applauded our efforts most generously. All agreed that it felt good to be a Morris dancer as we supped a well-earned pint of ale before going our separate ways. Thanks to Carole Confort for the photographs.

Kingston Morris returned to the river on Monday evening in Shepperton. It was rather warm and muggy with lots of grey clouds but thankfully the rain stayed off until after we had finished dancing. We danced a lively set by the Thames at The Thames Court before moving on to The Barley Mow. There was very little audience at the Barley Mow but we used the opportunity to practice some of the dances that we have rather neglected recently. All photos are taken with my phone in poor light so apologies for some lack of quality.
