Following the sad cancellation of the 2020 Festival the 2021 Festival Dancing Programme will be to our well proven formula bringing the town alive with Dancing and attracting large crowds to the Sunday Procession .

Invitations to 2021 will be the same as ever – if you were invited this year you will be invited again, invitations being sent out in the last week of November. Sides wishing to participate in future years should email the Squire with details of their group.
