Marsden Imbolc Festival 2010 - Mr Fox
Mr Fox - Kind of a morris side on steroids! Very dramatic, very scary and very talented! One of the theories behind the start of the celebration of Imbolc is that it marks the start of the lambing season.. According the Mr Fox website:
"Mmm, yes, foxes like lambs!"
The group join in with the precession and at tunnel end but to see what they really can do you have to find them alone back in the village after most folk have left.
The eerie music really added to the atmosphere too. If I can work out how to do it, I will upload a video in the next day or two.
This is just part of the Imbolc festival held in the village of Marsden on the edge of the Peak District National Park. Please feel free to have a browse through the entire Imbolc 2010 set to get a taste of this spectacular event! I have uploaded lots of photos of it so you might have to route back into my photostream to find my more regular photos...
