Trevor Boggart

Recently, we lost one of our dearest and longest serving Boggarts. Trevor Boggart, husband of Badger Boggart and kind friend to us all, passed away as a result of bowel cancer in May this year.

JMO National Day of Dance

The Boggarts took to the streets of Manchester to take part in the joint Morris Organisation (JMO) National Day of Dance on 30th March 2019. The streets were filled with a multitude of dancers from all across the UK adding colour, music and fabulous dancing to the city. Read more

Ossett Beercart Festival: We came, we saw, we met up with lots of old friends, we danced, we ate blue ice cream!

Cracking day out at the Ossett Beercart Festival 2018. Rained for a bit early on but by eck, that was cooling when the beercart was being lugged about town. Then it was dancing, dancing, dancing in the dry down town. Lots of lovely, appreciative audiences, great chances to catch up… Read more“Ossett Beercart Festival: We came, we saw, we met up with lots of old friends, we danced, we ate blue ice cream!”

Oh, what a beautiful morning………….

Mayday 2018

Our traditional May Day dancing the sun up on Higgor Tor took place this week and boy, what a fabulous morning it was. Our path up to the Tor was lit by bright, bright moonlight with a few twinkling stars to boot. There was a nip in the air but once the band had struck up and the dancing began, we all warmed up. Some of the side were desperately trying to tear their eyes away from a marauding group of cows but luckily the cows got bored and marauded off! Sun up was at 05.31 and a hush descended upon us as we watched the sun pierce the beautifully clear sky. Then, it was some group singing, more fabulous music and a trek down the hill to various breakfast feasts!

Boggart's Film Night Sidmouth LNE Spot

Lights, Camera, Action!
The scene was set, the band, resplendent in their dinner jackets, posh frocks and cummerbunds were ready to go. The Old Wild West descended on Sidmouth to be followed by magical creatures and ethereal dancing. Next was travel to a galaxy far, far away and finishing with life on the high seas. New music, some new dance moves – there was something for everyone at the Sidmouth LNE spot this year and boy, did we have fun!
