Dance displays

Dance sides will often perform out in public - mostly during the summer months, but sometimes around Winter Solstice, Boxing Day and New Year as well. Look out for all different types of Morris dance, as well as rapper (with flexible swords), Irish dance, and Playford style display teams. Information about where to see the performances will be added to this page as it becomes available; keep checking back!
