Dance Information

This jig, New Forest Wedding, was devised for the celebration of the marriage of Sue Ramsay and Barry Dudgeon at Minstead, Hampshire in 2002.

The New Forest is an area of southern England which includes one of the largest remaining tracts of unenclosed pasture land, heathland and forest in the heavily-populated south east of England.

The New Forest covers south-west Hampshire and extends into south-east Wiltshire and towards east Dorset.
