A couple of Norwegian dancers (+ a musician) visited Cambridge on the weekend October 15-16 as part of a tour of Britain; an informal show was arranged in Girton Old Hall on the Sunday, with CMM, Strathspey & Reel club and the Round.
Committee members departed from a meeting on January 20th in Trinity by a performance of Helston Furry round Great Court.
A group from C# visited Cambridge on Saturday February 18th for a joint party. (Arriving at 3; dance 4-6.30, eat dinner and then depart at 8.30)
30th April-1st May 1950: Visit to C# (Oxford) (Tales of solo Morris Jigs and dancing Dargason in the coach)
The Round party spent the night at a Guide Camp, and on May 1st danced at the head of the procession up "The High" from Magdalen Tower (the Oxford C# club followed). The result was that that evening the brief BBC TV News clip of "the dancing at Oxford" only showed the Cambridge Round!
