Sergeant Musgraves Dance - Nottingham Tram Ale
Sergeant Musgraves Dance
Nottingham Tram Ale
Saturday 27st April 2013
The first Nottingham Tram Ale was held in May 2005 shortly after the introduction of the new
NET tram system in Nottingham, and was organised by Jack
Dawes for Sergeant Musgraves Dance and
Ripley Morris Men. They were also joined
by Everards Original Anstey Morrismen. Jack has
sinced moved up North, but Sergeant Musgraves have taken on the responsibility of continuing
what has now become a traditional annual event and a regular part of the calendar.
The original idea was a series of dance spots at various pubs that happen to be located close
to the tram stops, and we still follow this same basic formula. In the first year we travelled
the whole length of the tram line from Nottingham to Hucknell taking in 12 pubs in 8 hours. We
now limit it to a slightly more manageble 6-8 pubs usually finishing at Basford with some heading
back to The Vat & Fiddle again.
*All times are approximate, especially as the day progresses and more pubs are behind us.
