The orange barriers are a distant nightmare and we will again be having a trail of dance sites in the city centre leading to the Folk and Maritime Festival site in the old town. If you are bringing family and friends with you, the city museums and art gallery are all free and so are most events at the four day Folk and Maritime festival. You can combine your visit for the Day of Dance with a visit to the Hull Folk and Maritime Festival or even catch the night ferry for a budget day trip to Rotterdam or Zeebrugge .

Invitations to teams are out. If you didn’t get one and would like your team to come, please let us know.

Keep looking in.

Update re Beverley Folk Festival 15th to 17th June 2018: Following the cancellation of the 2018 festival, the Fringe groups, including local Morris teams and the groups based on the Sun Inn and Tiger Inn, have promised to keep their events running over the weekend and would welcome anyone who would like to help or  support them in any way. They have a Facebook page and can be e mailed at beverleyfringe@gmail.com .

If you have bought tickets for the Beverley Festival, don’t throw them away! We understand that some of the acts put on by the fringe groups will accept full or part  entry by the Festival Tickets. We will add info when we know it.

Some Morris dance outs through 2018 will be listed in the “See Morris” section of the Morris Minors website which this hyperlink will take you to.
