The Flagcrackers of Craven black up their faces in the style of Border morris. There is no racial undertone or implication. Dating back many centuries this make-up has its roots simply in disguise. We welcome members of all race or creed to join us in celebrating the joy of traditional dance in this way.

Have you seen us, would you like to see us dancing at some of Craven's lovely pubs?

If so please pass this on to any landlords and ask them to contact us. If you're a landlord please do get in touch as we would love to dance and drink beer this year with you.

All we need is a flat hard surface to dance on. Sorry but we can't do gravel or grass.
