Xmas Day of Dance 2021 – London South Bank

On Saturday the 18th December we shall be dancing up the South Bank accompanied by several other dance sides from the Cotswold and Clog traditions including Old Palace Clog (Croydon), Offcut Morris (Croydon), Marlings Clog (Edenbridge) and the Greenwich Morris Men.

We start a little way upstream of Tower Bridge and finish just downstream from  BlackFriars railway bridge.

For anybody unsure of how the river flows (and some folks seem to be), then upstream is to your left if you are looking at the river from the South Bank.

We will be between Tower Bridge and London Bridge in the morning then twixt the Golden Hinde (just upstream of Borough Market) and Blackfriars Railway Bridge in the afternoon.

Times are approximate at the moment, do please check nearer the date.

10:30 Xmas Market by City Hall

11:30 Hayes Galleria (inside)

12:20 London Bridge City Pier

13:00 Make camp at the Old Thameside Inn and stop for lunch.

14:15 Old Thameside Inn by the Golden Hinde.

15:00 The Anchor

15:50 Founders Arms

Schedule is subject to unforseen changes due to tempest, pestilence, beer shortage or Morris Time. If in doubt just listen for the music and merriment: before lunch head downstream from London Bridge; after lunch wander upstream from Borough Market.

London Bridge rail/tube is handy for access being within 15 minutes stroll of all tour stops. For the start at City Hall, Tower Hill / Tower Gateway underground/DLR is around 15 minutes walk (but no closer than London Bridge). Buses 47, 343 and RVI also serve City Hall. One can depart at the finish via the nearby Blackfriars rail/tube or enjoy a 15-20 minute walk to Waterloo rail/tube.

Food is available at the pubs and also from a plethora of food stalls in Borough Market.

We look forward to seeing you at some point during the day.
