Windsor Morris on Sunday Brunch TV

Windsor Morris 2019 TV Sunday Brunch
Windsor Morris in the TV studio

Windsor Morris was asked to appear on Channel 4’s ‘Sunday Brunch’ on 7th July 2019. Five dancers and one musician were transported at a very early hour to the studio in London to demonstrate a morris dance and teach the presenters. The presenters learned very quickly – one of them is Simon Rimmer, who has participated in ‘Strictly Come Dancing’. They interviewed their foreman, Emma, courteously, and she was able to tell the world (well, the early-morning viewers) what a great life we have in the morris world. The team particularly enjoyed Emma’s reaction to the assumption that the TV appearance might be a highlight of our morris dancing careers – “Well, it’s the highlight of this week”!
