ANSTEY HALL, CAMBRIDGE, November 2016

We have played here before, for a party of Microsoft PhD students, in a marquee in the garden. This time we were inside the very lovely house itself, for a wedding ceilidh for an equally lovely bride and groom. The house was extraordinary – a working sedan chair, longcase clocks, marble and marquetry all over the place. 

After a very noisy start, the guests settled into some fabulously energetic dancing. Greg got the first Trump joke of the night in, much to Andrew’s annoyance. There were a few kilts in evidence so we did the Dashing White Sergeant, which went down a great. And of course the Cumberland Square Eight. Here’s the basket – always a good photo!


Sausage rolls in the Library, then back to work! Finished with Drops of Brandy, to ridiculously fast slipjigs. Even Greg claimed to be slurring (nine of us believed him …).

And we forgot to sell any CDs …. must try harder ….
