Newsletter Summer 2013

Three pages with colour pictures and a short article are given to the JMO Day of Dance in Exeter, organised by Great Western Morris. Exeter was also one of the venues for Damien Barber’s ‘Lock In’, with many local teams dancing in the city before the show. Then there’s a piece about Franken’s Nights in Devon, and the link to the Winkleigh Morris weekend of dance. A report of Roy Dommett’s ‘last’ Farnham workshop contributed by Barry Honeysett, Hadrian Wall Dancing, Whitby Shindigs and strange goings-on in Conwy Castle. And much more, including foreign trips, anniversaries and May Day celebrations.
