A sword lock, into which the
dancers weave their swords.
I've just opened an e-mail and learnt that the Southport Swords, our local longsword and morris side, will be dancing tonight in the Baron's Bar in the Scarisbrick Hotel on Lord Street from around 8-30 pm and later in the Guest House on Union Street. They're two of the best real ale venues in Southport, both having won many CAMRA awards, and it's no secret that the Guest House is my local.
Good beer and free entertainment too. What's BBC HD got to match that? *
