A mixed gender Rickmansworth dance group will be performing in a number of locations in town this month.
Phoenix Morris, which has been based in Rickmansworth since 1982, is dancing outside Watersmeet prior to the Rickmansworth Carnival on Saturday, May 11 prior to joining the procession through the town.
On Wednesday, May 15, members are performing at the Coach & Horses in Rickmansworth High Street from 8pm as part of the Ricky Week celebrations.
It will also be performing both days at the Rickmansworth (canal) Festival, dancing round the site.
In addition to these local bookings, Phoenix Morris also performs at events and folk festivals throughout the UK.
One example of this is the Sweeps Festival over the May Day Bank Holiday on the Saturday and another is the Wimborne Folk Festival at the start of June.
The group uses its shows to collects for local charities, including the Colne Valley Special Sailors based in the Aquadrome.
Morris is a great way to keep fit and have fun whilst keeping an old tradition alive and members range from 18 to 80.
The side practice every Wednesday evening at the Scout Hall in Ebury Road unless dancing out and is always looking for new dancers and musicians to join in.
For further details ring the squire, Michael Stimpson, on 01923 770425 any weekday afternoon.
