Meet the side...

Old Peter.

The first reference to Old Peter we could find was in one of the Shakespear Sonnets and goes thus:-

"make we merrie dancers of the morrysse

a joye to behold...

was even arounde in the day of Pytre

and he is indeed quyte olde..."

Having danced for many (many) years for some quite prestigious sides, Peter is one of our founding dancers.  He is an ideal mentor and guide for new members, with an encyclopedic knowledge of the art of Morris.

When not Morris Dancing, Ole Pete can often be found behind his beloved tankard, dipping his beard.
