Monday 4 July 2022 - 8pm - Fiddle Sticks North West Clog Dancers
Formed in 1983 in the village of Swardeston, Fiddlesticks North West Clog are now based in Norwich. Drawing their dancers from a wide area of Norfolk, during the summer months they can be seen in their striking green skirts and black waistcoats, and are a frequent sight entertaining holiday makers and locals alike outside pubs and other attractions. They are always accompanied by their band of musicians whose instruments include concertina, accordion, melodeon, tin whistle, drums and fiddle. Their style of clog dancing originated in the early 1900s in the north west of England. They wear the everyday footwear of that time; wooden-soled clogs, and the dances, using garlands, slings, or sticks decorated with ribbons and bells, are often named after their town of origin.
Monday 25 July 2022 - Holt Ridge Morris Dancers - 7.30pm
More traditional dance at The Maltsters. The Holt Ridge Morris Dancers dance in the 'Cotswold' tradition. They use handkerchiefs (waivers) and sticks and can often be seen at various festivals and fetes around East Anglia.
Wednesday 10 August 2022 - Kemp's Men Morris Dancers - 7.30pm
Kemp's Men of Norwich: Many Things Merry! Kemp’s Men dance a wide mixture of Cotswold Morris from a number of traditions but have also a repertoire of local invented dances, composed by the Men, often given names related to local people, places or events and based on the Norfolk longdance; the music for these is generally based on local tunes. Their musicians include a number of “honorary” men, i.e. women, and they have a range of expertise and instruments to call upon. Many of the dancers can also play music themselves so the pre and après dance session is a part of Kemp’s culture.
