Those bells and hankies are back in Sandbach again!
On Saturday the 14th September, Sandbach will once again host the popular Day of Dance of Morris Dancing.
Dance teams from around the region have been booked to perform from 10:30am to 3:00pm – with a short break for lunch - on The Cobbled Square, outside the Old Hall and inside St Mary’s Church Hall.
New for this year is an opportunity for children of all ages to have a go at Morris dancing. Teams will run free taster sessions in St Mary’s Church Hall throughout the day.
This free event, which has received a grant from Sandbach Town Council and funding from The Old Hall gastro pub and Waitrose Sandbach, will be a lively, colourful display of different types of Morris Dancing, such as Cotswold Morris with hankies and bells, North West, with dancers in clogs and Border Morris with rag coats and disguised faces.
During the day there will be opportunties to taste the wonderful food on offer at the Farmers Market, enjoy the BBQ put on by the Old Hall or light refreshments in The Church Hall provided by two local community groups. All this and the wonderful range of specialist shops that Sandbach has to offer!
It is hoped the day will attract an even larger number of both local spectators and visitors from further afield than last year’s event – fingers and toes crossed for another sunny day!
