An annual festive Morris dancing display has been cancelled.

The King’s Morris have performed at The Swan Inn in South Wootton for several years on Boxing Day.

But a shortage of dancers has prompted the group to cancel this year’s performance.

Bagman David Jackson said: “A number of our dancers are going away this year.

“We have danced virtually every Boxing Day since we formed in 1978. We have only missed three or four over the years.”

But the team have a busy January ahead.

They have been invited to take part in Plough Monday celebrations at Northwold.

They will be among several folk dance groups performing on January 11 plus villagers will be putting on a traditional mummers play.

The King’s Morris will also be taking part in the Whittlesea Straw Bear Festival, which will be taking place on Saturday, January 16.
