IVFDF Sheffield

IVFDF, Sheffield – 02.03.13
Hosts: Sheffield University Ceilidh Society

The February morning in Sheffield had an excited buzz in the air. Folkies were starting to gather around the city centre, some a little worse for wear after the previous night’s ceilidh with Blackbeard’s Tea Party. After a somewhat pointless trip across the town centre to let the organisers know that Leeds Morris Men had arrived, we were told that we needn’t have bothered and were sent back across town to where we began.

The dance spots were all really nice with ever increasing crowds as the day progressed. The dancing we saw from all the invited sides was really good. Boggart’s Breakfast in particular, were on fine form with some impressive air-born stick swapping and technical stick percussions.

Leeds finished the organised part of the day with a combined Jockey Jig alongside Jig crew and a mass-dance of Bonny Green with the remaining sides at the final dance spot. We quickly popped into the Winter Gardens for an impromptu couple of dances as Geoff had decided that, “It looks nice in there”. And it was indeed very picturesque and a nice way to round off the day.


Leeds Morris Men – Look at those lines!

Some of the side headed off home, whereas a large number stayed around to get involved in the IVFDF events that were happening in the evening; gigs, drinking, sing-arounds, drinking, rapper crawls, drinking, etc. etc.
