Dances and tunes


These are ‘our’ dances. Some we learned from other sides, some we made up.
There are videos of lots of these on our Facebook page.

Apple Bower – a long dance which makes performers simultaneously sweaty and thirsty

Brimfield – the one which makes maiden aunts blush

Drunken Idiot – for our Foreman

Feathers – a Cotswold dance from Eynsham because they are lovely boys

Four Candles – in honour of Ronnie Barker

Hay-on-Wye – from the actual Border

Mucky Duck – don’t live in a farmyard if you don’t want to get mud on your feathers

Ninepin – a new dance for nine… a daring innovation

Rose of the Warren – about the ‘forgotten rabbit’ in Watership Down

Smithy – hammer and tongs

Spires – because we like Oxford

The Whirl – makes you dizzy after a couple of ciders

On special occassions like May Day and the solstices we also dance with FIRE.



Dots for most of our dances are below. We’ll add more in the fullness of time.

Some of the titles are dance names, some are tune names. We don’t always play the tunes exactly as they are written. Obviously.

If you want to hear the tunes you can find them (and gazillions of others) at
