John J Freaks in the Peaks, 8-10th July, Lymm (6) Freaks in the Peaks, 8-10th July, Lymm 04 Jul 16

Freaks in the Peaks are a Border Morris side that meet up every 10-12 weeks for a weekend of Morris and ceilidh dancing, music, song....and fun!

The format of the weekend is quite simple: a hall is hired for the weekend that serves as a venue for teaching / learning dances & tunes. It's also used for indoor camping and as a general base for the weekend.

Friday night: Meet at the Spread Eagle pub in Lymm, Cheshire, for a bit of a sing, a play, a few beers and a damned good catch up.
Indoor camping for those that want to.

Morning: Dance and tune workshop
Afternoon: Pedestrian tour of pubs and other dance venues around the village.
Evening: Communal meal followed be a ceilidh / morris dance.

Morning: Walking tour of around 5 miles (in total) with plenty of dance stops / spots.
Lunchtime: Er, lunch break.
Afternoon: Continue the walking dance tour. Return to base to clear up and go home by around 4pm.

All jolly good fun!

Details are on the Freaks website
