    MORRIS dancing groups took to the streets of Liverpool city centre.

    The day of traditional English dance was organised by the Southport Swords and the all-female Mockbeggar Morris Dancers.

    The all-day event saw eight dance groups performing in Liverpool One, Williamson Square, Albert Dock and Church Street on Saturday.

    Dave Roberts, of Southport Swords, said: ?The idea was to show people how to dance and hopefully some will join us.?

    Nice one Howie. Love to see his act. Can't have much of a repetoire though.

    I loved the Peruvian type indians and their pan pipes. Saw some in Majorca last year, and I could stand and listen to them for hours. Also the two young rock guys, one has got a hand missing. They are superb too.

    Church st.

    Can anyone work out how this 'living statue' holds his pose ! ??
    How does he maintain that sitting position with no seat !! He stays in this pose for ages without so much as a slight wobble !
    I can guarantee that there is no 'invisible' seat - it's just fresh air bleow him ! I don't know how it's done
