Dancing out in the West Somerset area

 

West Somerset is beautiful area and has some stunning villages and panoramas (on a good day you can see all the way to Wales, which is most days).

 

We are also very lucky to have many picturesque places to dance at such as Porlock Wier (insert) and Dunster as well as some fine hostelries selling traditional local ales and ciders.

 

During the Spring and Summer 2018 we enjoyed dancing throughout West Somerset. 

 

The May Programme included Dulverton, Milverton Street Fair, Stogumber, Bicknoller, Exford, Wheddon Cross, Cannington, Dunster, Old Cleeve and Combwich with Sweet Coppin.

 

June saw the the West Somerset Morris dancing  at Watchet, Blue Anchor, St Audries, Withypool and Winsford.

 

July was busy starting with dancing out at the Porlock Weir Beer Festival, Goathurst, Bishops Lydeard, North Newton, Minehead, Porlock, Dunster, Burrowhayes,  Porlock Weir and The Quantock's Beer Fest at Bishops Lydeard.   The year continued with dancing out at Lynton, Lynmouth and Allerford before dancing at Dunster by Candlelight and at the Yarn Market, Dunster on Boxing Day.  We are now looking forward to the 2019 programme.

 

 

Why not join us at one of the venues below for some traditional dancing, music and singing.
