Windsor's own women's Morris dancing team will be entertaining the people of the town on Saturday.

Windsor Morris was founded in 1974 and members dance every spring and summer, performing mainly at pubs, shopping centres, fetes, festivals and events in and around the country.

Invitations from overseas have enabled the team to promote this aspect of English heritage as far afield as Jamaica, Canada, the USA, France, Germany, Switzerland and Belgium.

The Windsor team is characterised by its all white shirts and trousers, with rosettes and ribbons providing a striking splash of red, yellow and green. Windsor's dances are usually enhanced by one or both of their Fools who act as Master/s of Ceremonies to the audience and a catalyst to the dancers - watch out for the Round Tower hat and the "pig's bladder."

On Saturday you can see the ladies at Windsor and Eton Bridge from 11am to 11.45am, at Peascod Street from noon to 12.45pm, the Guildhall from 2.15pm to 3pm and the Two Brewers, Park Street at 3.15pm to 4pm.

Windsor Morris meet throughout the year on Wednesday evenings for practice at Gardeners Hall, 213 St. Leonards Road, Windsor.

Anyone who would like to give it a try is invited to free taster sessions on Wednesday, September 19 and 26, October 3 and 10 between 8pm and 10pm.

The course is open to men, women, experienced dancers and first timers alike.
