Morris dancers return for 16th annual performance

DOZENS of Morris dancers performed in Henley town centre.

The men and women danced in Falaise Square accompanied by musicians playing accordions, tin whistles, banjos, drums and fiddles.

A crowd gathered to watch the two-hour show and were invited to join in the final dance.

Participants came from five different teams including OBJ Morris, of Bracknell, which has organised the event for the past 16 years.

They wore black face paint, which dancers did centuries ago to hide their identities as it was illegal to raise money by dancing in public. Between routines the dancers collected money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
