Summer Nights

Northampton made its presence felt at the local summer dances, with eight people attending the Bedford summer ball and eleven at the Market Harborough dance.

Bedford proved to be a challenging night - not because of the dances, but because of the exceptionally hard and slippery floor. But that didn't stop us dancing into the night, even if some of the later dances saw us a little less light on our feet than before. Bedford laid on the usual fantastic spread for dinner, with an irresistable selection of desserts. Accompanying it all was the superb Strathallen band.

Market Harborough played host once more to the fantastic Robert Whitehead and the Danelaw band, this time with a brand new fiddler. Along with a good dance programme, they kept us on our feet all night, only pausing for the buffet dinner with lashings of cream for the desserts.
