A massive display of Morris dancing has heralded the end of summer in Windsor.
More than 40 performers of all ages treated crowds to five displays of different styles of Morris dancing at four different locations across the town on Saturday.
The all-day event was organised by the Taeppa’s Tump North West Morris Dancers group, who are based in Maidenhead.
They were also joined by the Armaleggan group, from Cumnor, in Oxfordshire, who dance in the Anglo-Welsh style, and Olwswick Morris, who dance in the Cotswold style.
Helen May, publicity coordinator with the group, said: “It was a really enjoyable day.
“Everyone seemed to be having a good time, we were lucky with the weather and all the crowds were all really appreciative.”
She added: “People were approaching us thinking we were in a competition, but really we’re just enjoying ourselves with our friends.”
For anyone interested in trying Morris dancing, Taeppa’s Tump North West Morris Dancers run free taster sessions at Furze Platt Memorial Hall, in Furze Platt Road, every Tuesday from 8pm.
