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 2017 we enjoyed dancing throughout West Somerset. On St George’s Day the team danced outside the Stag’s Head at Dunster.


May was a busy month with the group dancing at the White Horse, Stogumber, the Bicknoller Inn, and The Rest and be Thankful Inn at Wheddon Cross, The Crown Hotel at Exford, On the Gravel at Stogursey, the Globe Inn at Cannington, the Yarn Market at Dunster and Old Cleeve.


The pace continued through June with dancing at the Washford Inn, the Whitehorse Inn at Torre, the Star Inn and the Esplanade at Watchet, Stanford Brett Village Fete, at Nether Stowey with the Sweet Coppin clog dancers. June finished with the Bishop Lydeard School Fete, the Bicknoller Inn, the Blue Ball at Triscombe, the two Royal Oaks – Withypool and Winsford.  


The Porlock Beer Fest started July and was followed by dancing at Goathurst, the Bird in Hand at Bishops Lydeard, Minehead Sea Front by the Railway Station and at the Old Ship Aground, Burrowhayes Campsite and Porlock outside St Dubricius Church. The summer season ended with dancing at the Quantock’s Brewery next to Bishops Lydeard Station.  



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