WAKEFIELD MORRIS DANCERS
The Best of North West from West Yorkshire
The First Thirty Years 1980-2011 - and Forward to the Next Thirty?
HEADLINES Last Update 26thFebruary 2015
This site is primarily a repository for the history of Wakefield Morris over the first thirty years of existence. The diary and contacts will still be updated but day to day matters and developing repertoire will no longer be covered. But fear not, from the dusty back room video tapes (younger readers ask your parents) have been recovered and converted to modern DVD format. Details of the "tapes" are now on the "Galleries" page and details of how copies may be obtained. Having realised that video takes up HUGE amounts of disc for web space I'm going to explore alternate routes for bring the glories of the past to a screen in front of you. Watch this space - obviously over a time frame measured in months rather than hours. Oh and some time I'll get back to the salacious potted biographies that is this "Roll of Honour".
THE YEAR BEGINS TO LOOK BUSY OR AT LEAST THE SUMMERY BITS DO
The latest update to the bookings now loaded. For those wondering about the other aspects of this site and the glacial progress I admit to being somewhat tardy but also feel that after battling with Windows 8 I'm nearing a phobic condition when seated in front of a computer.
