Our hosts for the evening, Commonwealth Morris Men, began the processional, followed by Banbury Cross Morris (center) and Orion Sword.


The Master of Ceremonies.


Banbury Cross performed a couple of Cotswold morris dances, one set to a medley of Christmas carols played by our Nathaniely dressed, er, nattily dressed fiddler (below left).



The robust voices of Commonwealth.


A poem for the season, read by Angela.


Commonwealth's wardrobe might've gone south, but not their border morris dancing.


Orion debuted a dance in honor of the maker of their new set of swords (left and center), and later performed their classic "North Shirley Volunteers."


Thespians to a, um, man, Commonwealth presented a semi-traditional mummer's play, climaxing with the fall and rise of George Washingmachine (right).

The evening ended with the singing of a good old-fashioned wassail song (which one was it, now, Rick?).
