mandoleer Padstow Darkie Days (230* d) RE: Padstow Darkie Days 04 Apr 05


Never heard of the Darkie Days, but the idea of it reminded me of two things. At Scarborough Weekend once, we were intrigued to find that when one member of a Border Morris side had his blacked-up face washed, he was black underneath. And the other thing - has anyone raised any objection to the Britannia Coconut Dancers from Bacup yet?
