Thread Name: Folklore: The Abbots Bromley Horn Dance
Subject: RE: Folklore: The Abbots Bromley Horn Dance
Abbots Bromley itself is a scary place. We went to stay there because it is near my sister's house and I heard it was a pretty village. The dance wasn't on or anything. Found three (I think) decent sized pubs in the village where we asked for accomodation. The first had three people sat in the bar playing dominoes and we were told they were too busy. The second two were even quieter and we were told they were too busy as well. We left before darkness fell... ;-D

As to the dance. I play for Abram Morris and I thought seeing people dancing round in circles all day was dull. Glad I don't have to watch more than 1.5 minutes of the horn dance...

Cheers
