We’ve had a busy winter…

We’ve been learning a new dance from the archives – Hyde – and we are loving it!

Fingers crossed it will be polished enough to dance out at Rochester Sweeps at the end of April and the following weekend at Holmfirth Festival of Folk.

We have a busy dancing calendar in 2017 – check back soon and see where you can find us dancing this year. We’d love to see you…

A busy Billy’s weekend…

We are off to take part in the Cleckheaton Folk Festival on Saturday including the annual procession, Wickham Trophy and hopefully lots of dancing.

Then on Sunday we have been invited to join The Britannia Coconut dancers at their annual Crown Affair at The Crown Inn, Bacup.

How much fun can one have in a weekend? All of it, that’s how much!

Happy birthday to us!…

15th June 1986 – newly formed Slubbing Billy’s had their first dance out with Kirkburton Rapier at The Woodman, Thunderbridge. They danced their only 2 dances – Alderley Edge and Ashfield – and that was the start of an amazing Morris adventure that has taken them all over the UK, and into Europe, dancing, playing, having the best sort of fun and making a many great friends.

Tonight, we recreate that first night with a dance out back at The Woodman with Kirkburton Rapier for a very special birthday celebration.

Hope to see you there 🙂
