On Saturday we welcome the first of our many Morris Sides to compliment the musicians performing at four open air stages.
Wessex Morris Men
On Sunday, WESSEX Morris, one of the foremost Cotswold Morris sides in the Country will be appearing as part of their 60th Anniversary Celebration Tour.
‘Wessex’ along with 24 other Dance sides including Appalachian, Clog, Border and Cotswold sides, will bring South Street to a vibrant and musical explosion with a colourful array of Bells, swords and sticks with the occasional white kerchief waving in the air.
This is one event definitely not to be missed!

Are your feet itching to dance but unsure of the steps? then how about going along to one of our Ceilidh Workshops prior to one the Festival Ceilidhs to be held in the Church hall led by Monty Crook.We are delighted to announce that ‘No Strings Attached’ are to be our Festival Ceilidh Band.
‘NSA’ who have a strong and well deserved reputation for creating the brilliant musical dynamics essential for every successful Ceilidh are the real McCoy when it comes to generating the desire to dance.
Sunday Festival Special
With 24 Dance sides on Sunday weather permitting,we are going to celebrate the festival with an attempt on the World Record for the number of Morris and related sides to simultaneously dance ‘The Bonny Green Garter’. The attempt hopefully televised will be ratified on site and success or failure (which is not an option) will be announced prior to the closing Ceilidh Finale’ at 5.15pm the likes of which have never before been seen in Dorset. Be part of it.
