The weather dealt us a severe blow this year and most of the action was moved to the Princes Quay Shopping Centre with dancing inside and on the East entrance bridge. The teams taking part were undaunted and produced a worthy performance. We had a shock on the Sunday night (tonight) when Look North actually mentioned the Hull Folk and Maritime Festival and showed a short interview with Steve Gardham! Who knows, next year they might even show the dancing!

Now, Like King Arthur and Francis Drake, our website is going into hibernation until the call comes again.
Many thanks to all the teams and the spectators who came along on Saturday 28th July last year to make our day a great success. Even the weather was kind to us with the worrying early rain giving way to sunny skies.
We had spectators from all over the world, including visitors from New Zealand and Seattle. One Lady had come on the train from Boston (Lincs) especially to view our Day of Dance.
We had found ourselves in an unusually fluid team availability situation and thank all the teams for bearing with us. A special thank you goes out to Beverley Garland and Acorn Morris who, despite our best efforts, found themselves dancing in a group of two for a second time.
We hope you all had a good day and happy memories of your time here.
