To tyro: morris dancers?
Hello John,
I searched the internet with no success, so how did you find this troupe?
It is definitely the same group, I recognise the face of one of the ladies.
I am not sure that these were the dancers attracting the crowd in my previous picture, but encountering them amongst the crowds in the streets during
the day, they were unforgettable.
Thanks for your comments and research.
Kind regards

Good morning Jean,

Thank you for your kind words once more!

The research was very easy. Into Google I entered "Sidmouth folk festival Morris dancing" and this was the very first result in the list which appeared. And you will see that the very first photo on that Sidmouth Herald page shows people just like the ones in your photograph - and under the photo it says "Alton Morris" as well as the name of the photographer (Paul Strange).

Then it was just a case of "Googling" Alton Morris to confirm. :)

Kindest Regards,
