The weather was fine, the audience was plentiful, the Morris dancers were in abundance, and the Morris musicians put in a splendid performance.
The only thing lacking was post-dancing refreshment as the fair bar had unexpectedly run out of beer to slake our thirst. The Morris ingenuity came to the fore and there was a rapid adjournment to a near-by hostelry, for several of those present.
Others stayed to enjoy the many splendours of the Michaelmas Fair, a piece of a foreign field that seemed like it was forever England. How else could it be, after being graced by the presence of the almost divine Hong Kong Morris.
The Morris performed, inter alia, Lads A Bunchem, Shepherd's Hey and the Morris Men's Finale, Bonny Green Garters, for the first time in perhaps a couple of years. We were also graced, indeed blessed, given the occasion to a musical interlude from our fine musicians, together with the venerable Dave Wilmshurst with his concertina.
