Visit from Beverley Garland http://www.greengingergarland.com/2012/02/27/visit-beverley-garland/ http://www.greengingergarland.com/2012/02/27/visit-beverley-garland/#respond Mon, 27 Feb 2012 11:35:00 +0000 http://www.greengingergarland.com/?p=76 It was nice to meet up with the ladies from Beverley Garland recently; they came down to our practice hall in Cottingham, where we taught them Whitby Shindig, the dance with bobbins originally created by Val Marsden.

The Beverley team did really well in picking up the figures so quickly, and it’s fair to say that both teams were put through their paces in one of the most energetic sessions for some time.

It was also a good opportunity to socialise, and we look forward to dancing Whitby Shindig together as a double header when the teams meet on the Wold Tour 2012, which is provisionally set to take place on Saturday, July 14.

Burton Agnes Hall Michaelmas fair http://www.greengingergarland.com/2011/11/04/burton-agnes-hall-michaelmas-fair/ http://www.greengingergarland.com/2011/11/04/burton-agnes-hall-michaelmas-fair/#respond Fri, 04 Nov 2011 15:58:27 +0000 http://www.greengingergarland.com/?p=69 We were delighted to have been invited to this event at the East Yorkshire stately home on October 29. It was a Saturday afternoon and the lovely hall and grounds were buzzing with people. Fortunately the rain held off, and it was a crisp, clear autumn day – perfect for dancing, really, as we soon warmed ourselves up.

The lane up to the house was lined with all manner of interesting stalls, as well as a craft tent. It made a fantastic start to many people’s Christmas shopping, with the fare on offer including beers from the Wold Top brewery, Wolds jam and preserves, luxury sloe gins and sherries, wood crafts, clothing and much, much more.

It was great to have an appreciative audience, too – the place got busier as the afternoon wore on – and we were pleased to receive some positive comments. We really hope to be asked back next year, and many thanks go to Burton Agnes Hall.

The first Wold Tour, September 2011 http://www.greengingergarland.com/2011/09/15/wold-tour-september-2011/ http://www.greengingergarland.com/2011/09/15/wold-tour-september-2011/#respond Thu, 15 Sep 2011 09:29:08 +0000 http://www.greengingergarland.com/?p=59 On September 10, 2011, five folk dance teams got on a big bus and went on a tour of the Wolds. Green Ginger Garland, Green Ginger Morris, Beverley Garland, Grimsby Morris and Tatterfoals (from Scunthorpe) all got together for this inaugural event, and a great time was had by all.

The first stop was North Newbald at just before 10am, where a few villagers were up early enough to see the spectacle.

Then it was on to Lund, and there was an actual audience this time. Not only that, but the enterprising folks at the Wellington Inn had laid on a refreshments stall. The sun made an appearance and the people of Lund seemed genuinely pleased to see us, including the adorable and highly photogenic kids.

Our third stop was Huggate, and the Wolds Inn. For most people this meant beer o’clock, as it was approaching midday. Again a handful of bemused villagers turned out, and apart from dodging the odd 4×4 and pesky wasps, this was also a good gathering.

We stopped in Driffield for lunch. Seeing as we weren’t dancing there, the good folk of Driffield must have thought it slightly bizarre as a ragged collection of bells-and-breeches-wearing Morris dancers, smock-wearing ladies and assorted fools stepped off a coach and split off in all directions to find sustenance…

They all trooped back on the bus for the next stop, Bishop Burton. By this time the wind was getting up a bit, but again a few locals turned out and enjoyed the dancing. Finally, we rolled up at the Green Man in Welton, a familiar haunt for those of us based north of the Humber. Highlights were the double Whitby Shindig performed by Green Ginger Garland and Tatterfoals (which nearly had those at the back falling into the road), and the massed Bonnie Green Garters to round it all off.

It certainly looks like this will happen again – and if it does, we can only hope the weather treats us so well again. Had it rained all day, there would have been no dancing and it would have been more of a Wolds pub crawl.

Hang on… that may not have been so bad after all…

May Day celebrations, Brough Primary School http://www.greengingergarland.com/2011/09/14/hello-world/ http://www.greengingergarland.com/2011/09/14/hello-world/#comments Wed, 14 Sep 2011 14:33:17 +0000 http://www.greengingergarland.com/?p=1 In May, the Green Ginger Garland ladies helped teach a group of Year Four pupils, plus visiting students from India and pupils from St Anne’s special school in nearby Welton, how to dance around a maypole.

Other workshops on the day included traditional English folk songs, pottery-making and drama. The Indian students, from Bangalore, were in East Yorkshire as part of the UK India Education and Research Initiative (UKIERI), which started in April 2006 with the aim of enhancing educational links between India and the UK.
