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???

Not only will the evening be entertaining but there other good reasons to join us. Firstly, it is a tour de force, researched, composed and performed by Lewis Wood and his cast, intended to spread awareness of the many regional variations of these dance styles. Secondly, we will be supporting a valued but underused village hall at a time when venues for live music are declining.

So, we would love to see you on September 7th but if it doesn’t sound like your “thing” please will you tell any friends who might be interested.
