This year has been a funny one for weather – does your team have a strategy for winding up a dance if there’s a downpour once you’ve started? After Kirtlington we felt we should have one.

Fortunately when we danced on the Golden Jubilee day the weather held out for a long, long procession. We would otherwise have got very, very wet. [We did all take bin liners with us in case it rained early on, as we had rather a long wait before the procession started and nowhere to leave umbrellas or waterproofs] .
