Newsletter Autumn 2013

A bumper issue of 32 pages, including an extended interview with Dom & Ben Moss, two prominent new generation dancers, and a two-page colour spread of The Morris Federation sides dancing at Warwick and Sidmouth Festivals. Apart from four anniversaries and a wedding, foreign exchanges and performances in unusual settings, this issue also includes the background to a ‘modern’ tradition and a thought-provoking change to a club’s constitution.
