How much fun can one have in a weekend? All of it, that’s how much!
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 🙂
Here’s our list so far:
Tuesday 7th June – with Persephone at The Saville Arms, Hunsworth from 8pm.
Wednesday 15th June – with Kirkburton for our 30th Birthday at The Woodman Inn at Thunderbridge.
Monday June 27th – with Wakefield at The Blacksmiths Arms, Kirkheaton.
Wednesday 13th July – with White Rose Morris Men at The Sair, Linthwaite.
Plus more to be confirmed.
Hope to see you there 🙂
We are beginning to finalise our plans for the summer midweek dance outs and wondered where you’d like to see us dancing!
All ideas and suggestion welcomed…
And we’ve just about recovered to do it all again this weekend.
Closer to home this time – we are all off to dance at Holmfirth Festival of Folk 2016.
Do come and say hello if you get chance, there’s also plenty of other things to do and lots of great artists and dance sides to see.
Should be another great Billy’s weekend!..
