Peter Millington's Links

Home Page

The other websites I manage are all very business-like and/or academic. That's all well and good, but the links I've listed there are not necessarily much fun. So, since this is my personal website, I'm giving here links to the websites of a few of my favourite organisations and people. Enjoy!

Tristan da Cunha

The British Overeas Territory of Tristan da Cunha in the middle of the South Atlantic and is the world's remotest community. I first became interested in the island because of its traditions and folk music. The website is the official site of the Tristan da Cunha Government and the Tristan da Cunha Association, of which I am a member. I look after the Post Office's pages.

Folklore Society

The world's first, and one of its best folklore societies, it lives in the bowels of the Warburg Institute, University of London, and has an excellent specialist library - looked afer by the ever-helpful Caroline Oates. It has a creditable record of publishing material on my pet subject, folk drama, both in books and in its journal Folklore.

Mortimer's Morris

The acceptable face of morris dancing - North West style. Apart from their skillful and innovative dancing, this female team is well known for its elegant kit, and the men in black (of whom I am one) who play music for them in the French style. They are also regulars at the monthly French session at Ockbrook, near Derby, where they helped me learn to dance the Bourée, Mazurka, Scottish, etc.

Zoë Zegula, Textile Artist

I first knew Zoë when she was a dancer with Mortimers Morris. She had a hand in their famous wonderful kit, which was a portent of things to come. In recent years she took up textile art, and her superb pictures are increasingly sought after.

Lighting a Candle for Peace BBC Wales Video

My first wife made this video montage with the BBC in 2002 about her peace campaigning activities. It starts with a photo of our daughter Zoë when she was aged about 12.

Breaking the Procrastination Habit

My friend Lorraine may be remote geographically (she lives near Perth, Western Australia), but she's close many other ways. Her motivational website is, well, motivational! It's well-written, full of good advice, witty quotations, and much more. And her ezine - The Daily Dose - is well worth subscribing to.

Riverside Drama Company

Based in Long Eaton, must be the best amateur drama group in the Nottingham and Derby district. Certainly, I've seen them give some bravura performances, not least with Noises Off and The Morris.
