King's Square in York is a triangular shaped (why all they all called squares where often they're not?!) paved area near the top end of The Shambles, and is popular spot for street entertainers. At the time I was passing through these Morris Dancers were performing.
Morris Dancing is a form of English folk dance usually accompanied by music and has been danced for hundreds of years, being passed down through the generations in the villages of rural England. There are different styles of Morris Dancing with different coloured costumes, and often wield implements such as sticks, swords or handkerchiefs. Border Morris Dancers (from the English-Welsh border) generally wear 'tatter jackets' (see V2) and paint their faces.
