OUMM at Folk Weekend Oxford

Folk Weekend Oxford usually marks the unofficial beginning of our dancing out season, coming a week or two before our official start on May Morning.

This year we were scheduled to dance on the Saturday, with stands on Broad Street at 10am (alongside Mr Wilkins’ Shilling and the very impressive Winchester Morris), and outside the Pitt Rivers at 12:30pm (with Whitethorn Morris and our local friends Cry Havoc) – and we even managed to fit in a sneaky music session in the King’s Arms in between.

One of our fans* has taken some very nice high-quality video of our performances at Folk Weekend. The 1080p-60fps setting really does us justice.

(It also gives the Squire plenty of opportunity to see who needs extra practice!)
