Foot and mouth outbreak - emergency revision of programme

Flagcrackers are organising a Festival of Traditional English Dance around Gargrave from 8 - 10 June. Our guests represent a variety of styles from around the country.

Our Festival of Traditional English Dance WILL go ahead on 8 - 10 June. We may have to change some of the venues if the foot and mouth outbreak gets worse, so please check here again if you're intending to come to see us.

VISITING SIDES - we'll contact you in the week before the festival if there are any changes. We had a practice run at The Old Swan in Gargrave on Wednesday 23 May and it was splendid - the audience are really looking forward to the festival.
