Dancing and dogs at mar­ket

Macclesfield Express - - MACCLESFIELD HALF MARATHON -

MOR­RIS men and pam­pered pooches were amongst the at­trac­tions at a spe­cial Trea­cle Mar­ket at the week­end.

Me­dieval mu­sic played as the Adling­ton Mor­ris Men danced at the mar­ket on Sun­day.

And the Trea­cle Hound Dog Show, hosted by lo­cal grey­hound and lurcher res­cue charity Erin Hounds, took place in the grounds of St Michael’s Par­ish Church. Proud own­ers brought along pets in cat­e­gories in­clud­ing best puppy, best res­cue and best dressed.

Dun­can Broom­head, from Adling­ton Mor­ris Men, said: “As the lo­cal mor­ris side, we were pleased to sup­port this event. We dance tra­di­tional English Cotswold Mor­ris dances as per­formed for hun­dreds of years in vil­lages such as Bamp­ton, Head­ing­ton and Ad­der­bury. The mu­sic was by in­stru­ments with a history span­ning sev­eral hun­dred years, from the me­dieval pipe and ta­bor to the 18th cen­tury fid­dle, the 19th cen­tury pi­ano ac­cor­dion and melodeon.”

Adling­ton Mor­ris Men are run­ning free work­shops on the sec­ond Tues­day of each month from Oc­to­ber to Jan­uary, 8.30pm to 10pm at Wood­ford Scout Hut. Visit adling­ton­mor­ris­men.com
