Welcome to the Kingston Upon Hull Day of Dance website.

Updated 20.00 on 28th July, 2019

The host team, Rackaback, in action on the bridge to Princes Quay.

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.

Kesteven Ladies in Victoria Square 2018

2018

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.

The first video (Hornbeam Mollie) has appeared at https://youtu.be/2X-GtTaHvCc  . Hopefully, many more will follow. If you have posted  anything or have any photos you would like to share please let us know and we will circulate them.

The Kesteven Men can do it too!
