Coniston Hall Hotel – Private corporate party

A small, but enthusiastic group of dancers and musicians were delighted to provide “drinks reception” entertainment in a lovely hotel in the Yorkshire Dales.  We were smuggled into the venue and, as we began our performance, curtains separating us from the audience were drawn apart and an audience of around 200 were very surprised to see morris dancers in action!  It was almost impossible to hear our musicians as the audience cheered us along, but we somehow managed to complete our performance – to rapturous applause. We were delighted that several members even joined in our audience participation dance, the Festival Frolic.  The hotel looked after us very well, providing much needed refreshments, including delicious biscuits.  We hope we will be invited to return, as we all agreed that we’d had a lovely evening.
