Alton Morris started its summer dancing season in Alton’s Market Square to help celebrate the King’s coronation.

At the request of the Wheatsheaf pub in the Market Square, Alton Morris dancers donned their colourful costumes to entertain people arriving to picnic in the Public Gardens on May 7.

The pub laid on bacon butties and beer to thank them for the lively spectacle, which ended with a chance for locals to join in. Several people asked how they could join up.

Afterwards the dancers relaxed in the Public Gardens and enjoyed the concert staged by the Alton Concert Band.

Their 2023 dance programme can be found at
