Yorkshire Day at The Hartshead Social Club
Yorkshire Day at The Hartshead Social Club – Tuesday, 1 August 2017
Yorkshire Day and despite the rain earlier in the day, several of us went to Hartshead Social Club to celebrate.
We were met by a fairly large crowd in the car park and we danced the night away alongside Thieving Magpies and Persephone.
The landlord served very welcoming pork and stuffing batches which went down very nicely.
It was a lovely evening enjoyed by all I’m sure, hope we get invited again next year.
The Cliffe Castle Garden Party, Keighley
The Cliffe Castle Garden Party, Keighley – Sunday, 30 July 2017
We were delighted to take be asked to take part in the recent Garden Party at Cliffe Castle. We kicked off proceedings at the Band Stand stage area with a performance of several of our dances, following which we enjoyed a delicious picnic and welcomed the chance to see The Demon Barbers perform. As usual, their performance was most entertaining – we’re big fans! Later in the afternoon, we danced outside the Museum to an enthusiastic crowd.
We very much enjoyed being part of the event and look forward to being invited to return to dance at such a lovely venue. We were subsequently delighted to learn that a photograph of Rainbow in action was featured in The Keighley News!
An Evening of Dance with Wayzgoose
Tuesday, 25th July 2017 – An Evening of Dance with Wayzgoose
On Tuesday evening we were invited by the Otley based Morris team Wayzgoose to join them for a dance out together outside one of our local pubs – The Hop at Saltaire. This year we were really lucky with the weather and so had quite an audience sitting outside watching. Wayzgoose are a “border morris ” team, which contrasts well with our North West tradition to give quite a variety of dances.
We really enjoyed the evening, as did our audience if the amount of videos taken on mobiles by pub customers and passerbys is anything to go by!
Good to meet up with old friends in Wayzgoose and have a few drinks. A good night all round.
