Welcome to the Kingston Upon Hull Day of Dance website.

20th January 2018,

The Morris world is starting to stir again and Rackaback and Makara have just enjoyed a dance out in the cold at pleasant Sledmere Hall for the Colman’s Cider Wassail . This year the Hull Folk Festival will run from Thursday 26th July to Sunday 29th. The Day of dance will be on Saturday 28th July and we will be updating the website as information becomes available.

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 will be going out during February. If you don’t get one and would like your team to come, please let us know.

Keep looking in.

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.

NEW FROM  JULY 2017 Local bus operator EYMS have started a hop on/off Open Top Bus Tour with prices well below other city tours and under fives free. Full details available on https://www.eyms.co.uk/bus-services/service-information-item?id=1441
