Betley Village Hall

Another sell-out show at Betley, this time with added morris dancing! Thanks again to Tom for taking time off from rioting in London to play bass for us whilst James was knob-twiddling for Peter Pan at the New Vic in Newcastle (it's fantastic by the way). Looks like we will be celebrating New Year's Eve 2011 here in Betley, so put it in your diary now.

The Ashes, Angela and Andrew

Congratulations Angela and Andrew from the Moody Food Ceili Band.

An autumn day meant that we arrived in darkness so that the beautiful stone work of the old farm buildings and the lake below were hidden from view, but it's a pity that the dance floor is so out of character with the rest of the buildings. The strings of fairy lights on the trees outside made up for this, reminding me that Christmas is not far away and we had a very enthusiastic and lively set of dancers – nice to see so many young men sufficiently in touch with their feminine side.

Here are Sylvia's dances for your Moody Food Dance Card.
