Picture of Herga Mummers

Every Boxing Day the Herga Mummers perform a traditional folk play originating from the Pinner area. We always start at noon in the Case is Altered public house in Eastcote, to a large expectant crowd. The photo is of our gaffer, Bob Hawkes, as the Valiant Soldier - His head is made of iron, his body lined with steel....

Picture of Herga Morris

I danced with the Herga Morrismen for many years. Sadly, advancing years, creaking joints and the lack of new blood brought the team to a fading end. But wherever there are six men (and a musician ) gathered together, who knows what might happen.....

The haddenham Hoofers
The Haddenham Hoofers are an Appalachian Clogging team based in Haddenham, Buckinghamshire. They have a large string band in which I have many opportunities to indulge in some rocking American Old Time music.

Weston Clog Workshop
The Holwell Appalachian Clog Workshops are run by Maggie and Julie, with Kerry Fletcher (see above) as Dance Teacher, once a month on a Saturday morning in the village hall of Holwell, just north-west of Hitchin.
Doctor Sunshine

Doctor Sunshine My children grew up with the magnificent Dave Hunt, Professor Wingnut et al, Childrens entertainers extraordinaire (Oh no they didn't, Oh yes they did.....) Our tape of their LP never came out of the car Hi-Fi through the summer months.

Grand Union Morris

Grand Union Morris Originally taught by Bob Hawkes and Alan Simpson when we drove the two of them out of the house we shared while we held band practices for Puddleduck, so I kinda feel responsible! Their May Morning celebrations at the Red Lion, Coleshill are always atmospheric!
