Argentina has the tango, France has the can can and England has the morris. Morris dancing in England goes back to late medieval times and is first mentioned in 1458. By the end of the 19th century the morris had become unfashionable but was revived by Cecil Sharpe in 1899.  Morris dancing is now thriving Bury Fair, founded in 1978, dances traditional Cotswold dances, and we take our name from the medieval fair that took place in Bury St. Edmunds.  Morris dancing is good fun, good exercise and very sociable.  We meet on Wednesday evenings, practising in the winter months, and  dancing out at local pubs, fetes, fairs and weddings in the summer. Come and watch us, or even better come and join us! To contact Bury Fair: Bagman:  Ann Hills Tel: 01284 704598 Email:  buryfair@gmail.com Website www.buryfair.co.uk
