Abbots Langley History Society – 27 AprilPosted: April 28, 2015
The Society which started about 20 years ago, meets at Manor House Sports & Social Centre, Gallows Hill Lane, Abbots Langley at 8.00pm. It was the Clive Clark Lecture Court Entertainment to Ceilidh by Mike Ruff.
Mike had an illustrated talk and played music to bring to life the dances he was talking about. He started with the Tudors and then covered the next 500 years. He talked about the history of dance, where people danced, what they wore. He explained how country dance and folk dance have been kept alive. He also touched on the American influence. After the break he answered questions.
After the meeting I bought Leavesden Aerodrome : From Halifaxes to Hogwarts
