A feast of traditional dancing from around the country. Over 160 dancers and musicians from 16 different dancing sides (including East Kent) will be performing at the Buxton Day of Dance!
Hop Hoodening is the Kentish harvest festival featuring the traditional Hooden Horse, a hobby-horse with snapping jaws. Expect morris men accompanied by the Hooden Horses and lots of hops from the local harvest. The Hop Queen will arrive amidst a bower constructed of hop-bines and everyone makes their way into the Cathdedral . During the service the morris men dance in front of the altar and appropriate hymns are sung. Afterwards there’s plenty more dancing around town. Do come and join us!
