Bradford-on-Avon Festival and Texas Holdem

The calm before the storm

It’s going to be a busy few weeks for the lads of Northgate, what with the great Chippenham Folk Festival coming up, and before that we’ll be at the very first Bradford-on-Avon folk festival!

Yes, the beautiful Wiltshire town of Bradford is holding its very own folk festival, very much focusing on the dancing side of things. There will be around twenty five Morris sides appearing on Saturday, along with one rather lovely sword team. That’ll be us.

If you want to join the fun (and you do want to join the fun), come along between 10:00 and 16:00 tomorrow, 19 May.

But you mentioned Texas Holdem!

Indeed we did. At our practice last week, in the fabulous Curfew in Bath, we were visited by a couple from Texas. They were suitably impressed with our dancing and asked if we’d mind their joining it. We were very happy for that, and soon the Texans  were given swords and the did indeed Hold’em. Haha. See what we did there?

Jordan was even more impressed than his wife: “This,” he said, “is the second greatest vacation experience of my life.” The first was smoking a hookah in Palestine, so we’re in pretty good company.

If you’d like to follow in the footsteps of our transatlantic cousins, get on down to the Curfew any Tuesday from half seven, then come upstairs and join us.
