Saturday 18th May 2019 

Join us for our second annual Day of Dance which will introduce our  giant Green Man and his entourage who will tour the town performing the Bradford on Avon Jack In The Green mummers’ play to herald in the summer. Bath’s Widcombe Mummers will also be performing their traditional mummers’ play around the town.

Our dancing will have a local focus with dancers all from within roughly 30 miles of Bradford on Avon. It will have a strong Morris theme but many other dance styles will also be performing. 16 dance groups have already confirmed so that’s about 130 dancers and 40 musicians. Up to 10 more dance groups may attend.

Rowde Junior School’s excellent dancers will open the day at 10.00am and we will close around 4pm with some massed dances. Dancing will be at three town centre locations – Lamb’s Yard, and  overlooking the river and town bridge at The Weaving Shed and Westbury Gardens.

There will be lunchtime live music sessions (at least English, Irish and Appalachian) in town centre pubs.
Our first event was very popular so please join us for a friendly, local family day of dancing and music, and support our pubs, restaurants, cafes and shops. Wear something green!
