BEDCOTE Morris, Stourbridge's local Morris Dancing group, is hosting its annual Day of Dance in Stourbridge town centre on Saturday May 20.

The annual event, which has been going for more than 20 years, brings hundreds of dancers into the town, dancing in spots including by the town clock, Ryemarket Fountain, The Duke William and St Thomas Church Hall between 10am and 4pm.

A spokesperson for Bedcote Morris said: “With Morris traditions including Cotswold, Border, North-West and Clog, all featuring live music, the day is guaranteed to be an education in all things folk and give a great boost to local businesses.

“With dancing taking place on the streets, we would love for as many locals to stop and watch us dance as possible.

“There will even be an audience participation dance or two if anyone wants to join in.”

The day will be followed by a Ceilidh, with live music and dancing, at St Thomas Church Hall, starting at 7pm.

Similar to a barn dance, all dances have a caller and participants are shown all steps before each dance begins.

People can take along their own drink and dance the night away.
