Diary dates


  • Saturday 25th September 2021 – our AGM will be held online over Zoom.  We’ve made the sad decision to cancel the Day of Dance in September with hosts Customs and Exiles, and ceilidh band The Diatonics, and thank them for all their hard work.

Next year we’ll look forward to seeing you in person:

  • Saturday 9th April 2022 in Liverpool for the JMO National Day of Dance.
  • Saturday 24th September 2022 in Darlington for the MF Day of Dance and AGM with hosts Black Diamond Mixed Cotswold Morris.
