Didn't We Have A Lovely Time, The Day We All Went Dancing?

It started off drizzly, by lunchtime the sun was peeping through but by time the children and parents started to arrive, it was wall to wall sunshine for the 66th annual Country Dance Festival.

It was a magical sight watching nearly 600 children from 29 primary schools dancing around the circle performing to their parents and grandparents. There was approximately 1400 people at the event - our biggest turn out yet.

It was lovely to see the children and our compère David Crunkhurn flossing before the children cajoled the parents into dancing the circassian circle at the end of the evening.

Next year - why not come and join us on Thursday 13th June 2019 - you'll have a great time being part of a great Forest tradition!

Get Your Dancing Shoes On!

The forecast looks good.

The stage is set.

The children have been rehearsing like mad.

It must be time for the WGSP Country Dance Festival!

Please join us as the children show off their best dance moves on:
