Somerset Schools Folk Dance Festival

17 June 2017

Cathedral Green, Wells

On Saturday 17th June 2017, more than 2,000 primary school children will come together on Wells Cathedral Green to dance the day away as part of the annual Somerset Schools' Folk Dance Festival.

The Dance Festival is a well-established event in a unique environment. As well as being a splendid and very special occasion, the dancing enables schools to address aspects of the PE curriculum in addition to providing a varied social experience for the children as part of the broader curriculum.

The Dance Festival will start at 2.00pm with a procession through Wells High Street onto the Cathedral Green where the dancing will begin at 2.30pm and finish at approximately 4.30pm. Music and banners greatly add to the spectacle and fun of the day so please encourage parents, friends, teachers and children to be creative
