This is now our 5th year we have been supporting the Banstead May Fayre. It is a popular social event that attracts large crowds lining the closed High Street for the parade which consists of many local community organisations and schools.
Then the focus shifts to the Arena in All Saints Church grounds where there is a carnival atmosphere with all sorts of displays performed. ESMM were performing just after the May Queen was crowned. We then moved on to the High Street and did two slots. The photo’s below are taken outside Boots.

Our summer dancing season started with a great evening at The Plough, St John’s, Redhill. We did two sets to appreciative audiences then retired inside to some of the wonderful hospitality that guvnor Dave Stanley is famous for. See you again next year.
We have finalised the programme for 2015.
All dates are now in the Calendar and is fully searchable. It is also downloadable so you can integrate it into most on-line calendars etc. Now you need never miss an event we are dancing at.
Have a look at it or download a version for yourself to print of at your leisure from the link to the right.
The wait is almost over. The 2015 Programme is nearing completion. After weeks of planning, it is due to be published by the end of March.
2014 finished a great year for ESMM with our traditional Boxing Day tour. We danced and performed for the first time a Mummers play to enthusiastic audiences at three of our favourite pubs near Caterham and in Godstone. Here are some photos. There are more photos in a gallery on the 2014 page, together with Videos on the website.
