2015 Events


Formed in January 1990, Rainbow are celebrating 25 happy years of dancing this year.

We are currently organising a celebration ceilidh for members and partners to be held in September, and we also plan to invite past members. If you have ever danced or played with us and you are not contacted by the end of February, it’s not because we don’t want you, it’s because we don’t have your current contact details – so please get in touch if you want to be involved.

We are busy planning other special events and celebrations – watch this space.

Day of Dance, Saltaire

Rainbow are once again running a workshop at the above event. It’s a great opportunity to come along and get a taste of morris dancing. We are happy to welcome everyone – those who might wish to subsequently join the team and those who just want to do it for fun. One year we were joined by a hen party who had a great time!

Kern Day of Dance, Durham

Rainbow are attending Kern Morris’ event in the beautiful city of Durham for the second year running. Although it poured down all day last year, we had a great time dancing inside pubs with the other teams. We’re hoping the sun shines this year and we are able to dance outside the cathedral and in other attractive spots.
