A fine day out in Peterborough
On Saturday 25th September a bunch of us headed down to the famous fenland town, delighted to be guests of Peterborough Morris, hosts of Peterborough Day of Dance, 365th Meeting of the Morris Ring. What a fine day it turned out to be and such a great feeling to be together with other sides dancing for the public again after so long. 'Read all about it' here. Watch us and see more evidence here!

Rare sightings of Dolphins in August
Dolphin MM don't usually go out of an August, but the urge to get back into kit after so long proved too much to resist. We first ventured out at our 'home' pub, The King's Head, Sutton Bonington on 29th July, and then last week INDOORS (yes, it was pour'n' outside!) at the ever welcoming Black Horse, Caythorpe, on 5th August - see the evidence here and here! On to the Sun Inn, Goatham next week, and thereafter... we'll see...

We're back (slight return)!
After a few tentative 'socials' over the last month or so, half a dozen brave souls ventured a dance or two - in civvies, mind you - last Thursday evening, 27th May, at The King's Head, Sutton Bonington! View the evidence here...
Could be out in kit soon!
Dolphin is a men's Cotswold Morris side
We dance a number of traditions (including Adderbury, Fieldtown, Headington Quarry, Bledington, Bampton, Ilmington and
Lichfield) and have members who hail from all over Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Lincolnshire.
From September to April we practise at Kingston-on-Soar Village Hall
(near J24 of the M1) and recover from the ordeal with a pint and, usually, a few tunes and songs in a local pub.
In January we generally perform a Plough play and throughout May, June and July we dance out at pubs and events around Nottinghamshire, as well as the Leicestershire, Derbyshire and Lincolnshire borders; after which we usually like to try and get a good singing and music session going.
