Lanivet Fete (Note the new nomenclature) 

South Petherwin 


Thanks to Bodmin Folk Club for the pictures

St Ewe - inside and outside (Thanks to Charles Francis )


On one foot again 


St Minver - some dancing ducks 

St Columb 

St Mawgan 

You wouldn't believe the slope from these pictures


Sticker - a tight dance spot with added bollards 

And Vic being suitably submissive 

Polgooth - no early closing here

Trigger mystified 

St Germans 

We met Boscastle Morris at St Kew 


We went to Hayle - where we had a warm welcome from Carn Brea, Pensans, Tywardreath, Joan the Wad and the Bird in Hand .

(Thanks to Tim Payne for the pictures )

Tregrehan offered us a warm welcome on their football pitch

Brighton Camp

I'm still not sure about the offside rule 

And they joined in as well

Luxulyan was not blessed with a large audience 

Avoiding the milk tanker

Tremar Coombe doesn't have many visitors - they haven't a pub 

But they gave us a warm welcome 

And joined in too 

We also went to Fowey for the Coronation celebrations (but no Beacon !) 

And Lostwithiel and Darite 



Our 52nd Easter Tour !

We were welcomed to Launceston by Rob Tremain as usual 

And we danced in the Square 

(Pictures thanks to Duncan Williams for View From Newspapers Ltd.)

We then went to Lewannick to dance outside the Archers


And we ended our tour at Lanivet 


Maurice had another birthday - and we all had to dance 

Note the new member (Josh) with plain baldricks 

(With a few friends from Tywardreath Morris)

Maurice Jig

And the grand old man danced "Lumps of Plum pudding"

King Charles' new reign beckons: the Feast of St Hygenus called us to dance 

2022 - A new year with less isolation... 

Mumming to round off the year :

A trip to dance among the Caulkheads (The Isle of Wight MM invited us) 

Roger was happy 

Alan joined us - as our Squire seemed to want to leave 

It was confusing dancing next to others with green baldricks 

The End of the Pier show 

Thanks to Maggie Reeves and Tony Hayzen for these photos 

Thursday dance-outs :

The Smugglers Inn & Mawgan Porth 

Vic telling the world our story 

Dudley did us proud 

and our bagman kept busy 

Mevagissey saw us on the Quay

Keen eyes will spot an out-of-county member 

The Good folk of Pentewan haven't caught up with our change to a mixed side


But they did give us a warm welcome 

even if we balance on one leg 



There was the busy setting of Padstow and the Drang 2022

Padstow- the Drang

Padstow- the Drang

We also saw St Columb and had fun it seems 

The Silver Ball St Columb

The Silver Ball St Columb

And St Mawgan dancing on the slope (again) 

We went as far East as we could to Tideford

and the people you meet there !


And also the Eliot Arms 2022


St Kew Highway 

 Lostwithiel Monmouth Square & Royal Oak walkabout 2022



We walked about - even over across the Bridge 

 And a special Retirement do at Sawles Arms 2022


 We went to the pub-free zone that is Pengover Green 

and entertained people in our colourful manner







 We then went on to Menheniot for more fun and dancing in the street 

Outside the White Hart 


I've seen that dance step on our posters Elaine !

Neil apparently in another dance altogether 2022


With Malcolm - our own David Bailey 


And an ever eager Terry 

We had a big crowd in Fowey where we helped the Mayor light a Jubilee Beacon 


And of course we had to light something ourselves - Sparklers !

We went to Lanlivery and Luxulian 

At the first spot Trigg was down to earth 

At Luxulian it was more star-struck 




We went off-piste to Coombe

(no pub , but lots of people and fewer sticks than ideally necessary)

We took some beer


And the good folk of Coombe joined in 

A smaller dance spot and crowd followed at Summercourt 

We went to Altarnun and Five Lanes - meeting Lady Cyclists and a convenient hat stand 





The Easter Tour happened 


As well as posing in Launceston - we danced 

and Trigger snuggled 

But enough of that - on to Lewannick and the Archers Inn there 


And to more posing at Jamaica Inn 


And after that - there was Blisland and Lanivet - a blissful day 


We gathered at Tywardreath on April 9th to celebrate the passing of Phil Champion

- well loved dancer and erstwhile Squire

Thanks to Covid-19 we had to wait two years to do this 

We processed to the New Inn where Tywardreath Morris joined us 

And the day was rounded off with a lot of box playing 

Many friends were there 


Trigg was subject to an investigation by the BBC !

Their eagle-eyed investigator Jack Murley came to see us practise

He put a very furry microphone under our noses and put us on the radio 


and he even persuaded us to practise with bells on

- so that he could have a dance with us as well.

Three sides : Trigg, Tywardreath and Plymouth joined together to celebrate Maurice Dart's 90th Birthday 

Looking dapper as ever 

And still he dances ! 

After Lichfield he went on to Fieldtown, and then a jig !

The Feast of St Hygenus was face-to-face 

And then there is the question of Trig points 

 That is a concrete block on Helman Tor - not to be confused with Trigg Points 


What's happened in 2021 ?

We danced out Lanivet and sparkled - and Trigger met his new friends 

This was the same dances to Xmas tunes 





We then went on to Tywardreath where it seemed appropriate to dance indoors




What ? The Turkish Knight dies again !



The nights were drawing in when we went to Tideford 

and strange apparitions were seen 


Après Morris involves a lot more milling around and chatting this year 



A select band went to the Folk Festival at Wadebridge on August Bank Holiday and Anita White snapped us there 


We went to the Merrymoor Inn and watched the sunset (and thankfully missed the crowds going to Boardmasters)



And Sherriff's Ride to finish - dodging the Car Park traffic

We went out to Pentewan & Polgooth (and drew the Raffle) 2021


 Most of us joined in



 Other people snapped us (thanks to Buzzard LLP) 


Neil is getting used to contactless cash collection with Trigger's help 


Pentewan 2021




There was Fowey ? (with a new dancer ) 2021





and there was Easter at Launceston (for a select few) 2021




FOSH by Zoom 




We practised during 2020 :


This shows us socially distanced as the sun went down outside our usual practice hall in Lanivet 

Even Stanton Harcourt was attempted at 2m intervals 


And then there was Zooming to try out - with a lot of Quiz sessions 

Our favourite Maurice hit 88 this year 


And it proved possible to perform a Virtual Mumming Play

 Plus a bit of sparkling : At the end of the dancing season in September and then Just before Christmas at Launceston   






Some sides are in the Morris Ring - but not like this - a cold place to practice

We sang songs and promoted apple growth at Hybadore 2018


Trigg becomes a more inclusive side in 2018 with new members

 Brian Palmer, on the left, stood next to Reg Ellis ( who was our Molly, but was not wearing kit that afternoon).  John Tremaine is in kit on the right.


   Trigg at Jamaica Inn 28 June 1984









Here we are in Launceston Square in 1976 More


It seems that on 15 March 1974 Trigg danced in Launceston Square 

But in Hats !!! 


And in 1971 at Easter in St Mabyn it seems we managed in Tabards rather than Baldricks

It seems this was the kit worn during the trip to the Irish West Coast and Willie Clancy

Dancing "Headington -How D'ye Do" 

Roger almost struck by Phil Beaumont + Mike Johnson + Vic Legg


Could that be a cummerbund ?
