At our 29 May 2018 meeting we welcomed partners and guests to hear Nuala O'Neil, a member of the Wild Hunt Bedlam Morris, speak about Morris Dancing.

There is a variety of Morris including the Cotswold Tradition (white clothes, bells, baldric), North West Clog (19th century style shirts, skirts, waistcoats, heavy shoes) the Bedlam Tradition (tatters and masks). All three traditions are represented in Croydon.

The Croydon Night of Dance has existed for the past 15 years and this year will take place on Tuesday 21 August outside three pubs  – the Oval Tavern, the Builders Arms and the Cherry Orchard. The Night of Dance is now a partner organisation with Croydon Rotary Club so any funds collected will go to the Rotary Club President's charity.

In the photographs, Nuala can be seen in Bedlam costume, and pictured with President Peter Spalding and Vice President Loraine Davis, who is a clog dancer.
