Ha ha har

I can see why the City has erected a forest of bollards here, Chris.

And...the Jules Verne style space ship clearly works...
Chris: Bollards are everywhere in Bath Ray, all to deter greedy people from ram-raiding shops. The spaceship supports street cameras
I want a bouquet on my head! But I'm not sure about the blue face... Is this in support of Manchester?
Chris: No Ellie, a group of itinerant dancers

A great find again and don't we all want to dress up once. Is this the event that everybody is dressed up like this and walk the street, forgot the name.
Chris: This is just an everyday street scene in Bath Astrid, nothing special
Getting all their ducks in a row and their stories straight?! smile
Chris: Having a natter Ginnie

Have they escaped from the Chelsea Flower Show?
Chris: I can see why you asked that

Largely because you're barking mad!
Birds of a feather flock together.
Chris: That is true Chad
I read up on these dancers last year. Whatever floats your boat, eh.
Chris: I'm sure they're happy doing what they do Mary
Just when you think things can't get stranger....Good catch, Chris.
Chris: It's all happening here Frank!
There was great controversy over the Border Morris men not long ago who for centuries have danced with blacked up faces. This was seen as racist and they were banned from a festival in Shrewsbury (I think) but actually was traditionally done to disguise the identity of the dancer. Blue is unlikely to offend anybody apart from non Conservatives
Chris: Theresa May was in Bath today, these idiots might delight her..
I seem to recall seeing something about this group on TV recently.
Chris: Oh really!
Only in Bath!
Chris: It seems that way Tom..

Once again Chris you are in exactly the right spot for your photography. Did they dance for you?
Chris: No Anne, they didn't see me..
Quiet can be a relative term...
