This free session is open to all comers over the age of 12, no prior experience is necessary. Sticks will be provided but if you have them, two large white hankies would be useful.

Arts Festival Session 2018

Boxing Day 2017

As usual The Shropshire Bedlams and Martha Rhoden’s Tuppenny Dish will be dancing at the Three Tuns in Bishop’s Castle on Boxing Day, starting at about mid-day.

If the weather is too inclement the dancing will move to the Top Room at the Tuns.

As in previous years, the Boxing Day collection will be given to Air Ambulance.

Grab some fresh air and a drink, hot or cold, and watch the dancing, and you will feel that post Christmas Day lethargy slipping away. You might even think “Hey, next year I could give that a try!” - new recruits are always welcome, any age over 12. Click here for more details.
