Dancing in the trenches to honour the morris men killed at the Somme

Cecil Sharp's Demonstration TeamArticle in The Telegraph, “Now a century on from their deaths a modern day troupe of young morris dancers are heading out to the Somme in July to perform at the cemeteries and memorials where the names of their forefathers are recorded. The dancers are part of a side called ‘Fool’s Gambit’ whose 16 members hail from across the country and are aged between 17 and 25.”
