We went to Horsham just for an afternoon's shopping and, by happy coincidence, we'd chosen the day that more than a dozen different Morris sides were dancing all around the town centre, wearing fantastic costumes. I found a good spot and got snapping:
(Above) Dancers from the Knockhundred Shuttles, a Northwest Clog Morris side from Midhurst in Sussex.
(Above) The ladies of the Magog Morris side from Horsham, supported by their drummer and one of their junior members on tambourine.
(Above) Members of the Pentacle Drummers group from Eastbourne.
(Above) The Jackstraws, a women's Cotswold Morris side from Hale, near Farnham in Surrey.
(Above) Ewell St Mary's Morris Men from Ewell, Surrey.
Sticks, staffs and swords belonging to Horsham's Broadwood Morris Men.
