Boxing Day 2018

Boxing Day Tradition is a breath of fresh air!


If you are out and about on Boxing Day this year Rattlejag Morris, based in Retford, will be “dancing out” as is the old tradition at rural pubs and everyone is welcome to come along and join them – maybe even get a chance to dance.  As in previous years they will be bringing their local “plough morris” style to the Blue Bell Inn in Gringley-on-the-Hill  (DN10 4RF) at 12 noon on 26th December and at 1.00 pm to the Sun Inn in Everton (DN10 5BQ) – not the Blacksmith’s Arms as advertised earlier.  Both rural hostelries are off the A631 Bawtry to Gainsborough road.  The musicians from the AVID Blue Bell sessions will play in that pub afterwards and there we hope there will also be traditional music in the Sun Inn following the dancing, along with a bit of drama!  The Rattlejag Mummers may well bring along their seasonal version of the East Markham Plough (or folk) Play.  Stay on after the dancing at these delightful village pubs for some good refreshment and a bit more free entertainment.
