We are still busy planning for events in 2020 – in the running of events and being involved with other events – and also, in readiness for the Trust’s 21st birthday in 2021. In light of the current situation (March 2020), we will update you as and when circumstances change and as more information becomes available.
The event below has been rescheduled to 2021 April 24th
Stepdancing at Strumpshaw Tree Fair on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th July. For the second year Stepdance Day is being funded with thanks to the Instep Research Team. We will be looking to move it to another county in 2021 but if you missed it last year, the Tree Fair is well worth a visit and entrance fees are extremely reasonable.
Stepdance Co-ordinator Fiona Davies is busy working on this event. On the Saturday, there will be a showcase of Norfolk Stepdancing with Norfolk band Hushwing. The official “Stepdance Day” will take place on the Sunday from 2pm with demonstrations, workshop and competitions. We welcome old and newcomers!
We have booked our pitch for FolkEast 2020 21/22/23 August and hope to get more involved over the weekend. Watch this space over the next year for more updates.
