What a day it was!

FOUR OF HULL AND EAST YORKSHIRE’S DANCE TEAMS – BEVERLEY GARLAND, GREEN GINGER GARLAND, MAKARA MORRIS AND RACKABACK MORRIS – HOSTED THE MORRIS FEDERATION AGM AND DAY OF DANCE ON SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 23.

All the dance spots were within walking distance of the historic Guildhall, the base for the day as well as our evening ceilidh venue.
In preparation for Hull’s year in the spotlight, extensive works were carried out between 2016-17 to transform the city, and there were lots of lovely new squares and piazzas just waiting to be danced on.

Among the highlights of the day were the opening ceremony with the inimitable Hull and East Riding town crier, Michael Wood, and dancing for the first time on the unique and award-winning Scale Lane Bridge – the only bridge in the UK where you can stay on it as it swings. There was also dancing in the Museums Quarter in our historic Old Town, the newly redeveloped Humber Street, the redeveloped Trinity Market, and in the new King Edward Square outside the iconic ‘Three Ships’ mural.

Please see our gallery page for our official photos of the day, check out our shop where you can buy badges and programmes if you missed out – and watch this space for our film of the day, as well as plans for 2018.
