Clog Dancing Workshop - 10:15 to 11:45 Reeth Memorial Hall
Members of Richmond Castle Clog will introduce traditional stepping from the north of England, creating percussive rhythms and fancy footwork to complement hornpipes, waltzes and jigs played on a fiddle. Clogs will be provided. Recommended for age 6 and above. Children under 16 should be accompanied by an adult. No need to book but numbers are restricted so it’s first come, first served.
Generously supported by Celine Barry and Hilary Plews
