Folk dancers take over the beautiful medieval city of York this month, with processions, dancing in the city’s squares, show dances and friendly pub gatherings.
On Saturday morning, Morris teams will arrive in St Helen’s Square, processing from the historic Guildhall to King’s Square before dispersing to dance spots across the city centre. In the afternoon, all sides convene in St Sampsons Square, at the corner of the medieval Shambles district, for a grand finale. On Sunday, dancing takes place in St Sampsons and Kings Squares.
This year’s dancing teams include Flagcrackers, Acorn, Pateley Longsword, Brackley, Kitchen Taps, Minster Strays, Raving Maes, Wakefield, Hadrian Clog, St Clements, Wadard, Tower Ravens and Ebor. See www.ebormorris.org.uk for more information.
