‘Morning Star’ is the name of a morris dance which comes from the Gloucestershire village of Bledington.
Bledington is an ordinary Gloucestershire Cotswold village, close to the Oxfordshire border where it’s own tradition of dancing the morris came to an end over 100 years ago.
In more recent times, revivalist sides (teams) keep the tradition alive, and my side (The Gloucestershire Morris Men) are one such example.
Here, they are performing on a cold November morning outside an old family brewery in Gloucestershire whilst I took some publicity shots for our 2010 programme.
