Welcome to the Kingston Upon Hull Day of Dance website.

25th September, 2017: We are now going into hibernation until the next big thing comes up.

In 2017, Hull’s Year as the Capital of Culture, we promised to make it a big one for Morris.

The  Morris Federation AGM lived up to its promise a feast of Morris for the City of Culture. The local Morris Federation steering group  has its own dedicated website  at hulldayofdance.com . The list of  teams is entered on the “Meet the Morris” page. You can access information on dance spots by following this link.

Once again the most notable feature was the total media blackout on it by Look North and the Hull Daily Mail. Nowt!

Videos from the “Survivors’ Session” on 24th September are posted on Youtube at:

The Hull Folk and Maritime Festival ran again  as a three day event and Saturday 22nd July, 2017 was confirmed for the Kingston Upon Hull Day of  Traditional Dance.

Last year it was the Plague of the Orange Barriers. This year the dancers have had to compete for space against a national Gay Pride event, the BBC proms and several minor events in the city centre. Nonetheless, Jamie assembled 21 teams and 16 locations to bring our annual blaze of colour and tradition to Hull city centre. There was  also  a small number of teams in the Marina/Folk festival area from 11.a.m. on Sunday morning.We had  a wonderful day when Hull was ablaze with colour and tradition. Many, many thanks to all those teams who danced throughout the day  and the musicians who accompanied them. Thanks  to the people of Hull who provided such an enthusiastic and appreciative audience
