Blackheath Morris in the Olympics Closing Ceremony

As mentioned here before, in their various incarnations Blackheath Morris Men - who practice sometimes in the Dog and Bell pub in Deptford - have played with all kinds of people over their 40 year history, including Hawkwind. Last night they appeared with Monty Python's Eric Idle in the Olympic closing ceremony.

Another SE London connection in the same scene: one of the angels was Sharmina Harrower, a 19-year-old model from Sydenham (seen kneeling in front row above, and left below).
