Sheringham Potty festival

The sound of bells, men and women dressed up in bright gaudy clothes with feathers and flowers in their hats, the haunting and primeval folk music, black makeup on faces, just like ancient pagans – the morris men known as Pottymen, here in Norfolk hit the streets of Sheringham  in a truly festive atmosphere.

The children and even dogs were enjoying themselves and entered into the spirit of the festival as my photographs show!

Morris men from all over the country now come to this well established event here on the North Norfolk coast.
