Dance

We’re happy to say that we have a number of Morris teams able to join us at the festival this year, although most will not have a complete side. Covid has had a knock on effect to many teams who have not been back to practice let alone dancing out.

Our Dance Coordinator has arranged for a mini ‘massed’ Morris with all teams at three times during the day:

  • 11 – 12 King’s Arms garden
  • 1-2 Town Quay
  • 4 – 6 King’s Arms garden

  • 11.45 – 12.20 Carey Hall – Steps In Time (just before our Patron Tim Laycock officially opens the festival), and they will also be dancing around the town.

  • Zlaten Klas will be putting on their colourful displays during the day in town.

The teams will also have with them lovely people who will be passing amongst you with collecting buckets. We are a registered charity and any donation you are able to give us will help Wareham Folk Harvest return again next year.

Below is a list of the dance teams that will be attending…
