Barn Dance with the Barley Cote Band and caller Baz Parkes

Saturday 15th October 7pm – 10pm

Waring Green Community Centre, Garden Road, Brighouse HD6 2AX

Following the success of our Midsummer Dance, we’re back with an Autumn version with a slightly earlier start and finish time to make it more family-friendly.

Your caller is Baz Parkes with music from the Barley Cote Band (Chris Partington on fiddle, Anahata on melodeon and Mary Humphreys on keyboard.) A good time is guaranteed!

7pm to 10 pm, bring your own refreshments.

Admission £10 (£5 for those in full-time education and under 12s free)

A great band, probably the best caller north of Wolverhampton and Waring Green’s famous sprung floor. What’s not to like???

May Day was one of the major festivals of the Celts in Britain, representing the first day of summer and has been celebrated all over the country ever since.

Finally, after two years of lockdown, Ryburn Longsword will be dancing together in the real world, rather than virtually, to to bring up the sun at dawn on May 1st 2022.

If you would like to watch, we dance at the far end of the Scammonden bridge over the M62 motorway at approximately 5.32.
