Downton Abbey theme for Flagcrackers of Craven party

First published in News

Morris dancers The Flagcrackers of Craven donned slightly different attire for their latest event.

The Border Morris team dressed on a Downton Abbey theme for its annual dinner.

Characters ranged from smoking-jacketed gentlemen to walking wounded servicemen and glamorous flappers at the Golden Lion event in Settle.

The Flagcrackers are preparing for another busy year, and welcome new recruits. “We are a mixed side, which actively encourages families to join,” said a spokesman.

“With grandparents and grandchildren in the side together, it’s a rare hobby that spans the generations, helping keep the whole family fit and travelling to weekend festivals together.”
