Morris Dancers 1

By TrevBatWCC    
All this weekend it's the Wakefield Rhubarb Festival which is held in February each year in the city centre. Around the Cathedral area, there are lots of stalls selling a variety of food items and drinks, many using rhubarb as an ingredient, as well as stalls selling takeaway snacks and drinks. Around all the stalls it was heaving with lots of people about, and I've never seen it as busy as it is this year. I'd liked to have captured some images of the stalls and their goodies, but there were just too many shoppers in the way. After taking my piccies I did buy and bring home some rhubarb flavoured cheese, and some rhubarb beer! 🧀🍺😋
There's always some entertainment going off, like these Morris Dancers, though this year it does seem to be lacking other entertainers. There were other Morris Dancers, and the musicians accompanying them, which I'll upload later.

Great action capture, I can almost hear the music, it looks like a good time was had by all and I hope you had some sunshine to go with it.

What a fine set, Trev, and a really good write-up. Put the two together and itís almost like being there for us. The expressions and postures are so well thought out, hereís to rhubarb, too, itís supposed to be extremely healthy 🙂

Since this traditional dancing is quite popular, I am somewhat surprised that other car manufacturers didn't take up the idea in addition to Morris...Wink

Mixed Morris dancing? Ye gods, this is avant garde! You realise that you can be lynched for less than this in some parts!

You've captured a great bit of movement, with most of the feet off of the ground. Smile
Difficult to get any sense of separation from the background in these instances, but you've pulled it off.

This is fabulous - we have to keep up all these traditions that bind communities together. What better vegetable to hold a festival about?

Great set and a Rhubarb Award has been planted!
