2015 Day for St George, day of dance

The 2015 Day for St George day of dance will be on Saturday 25th April.
So far we have four visiting teams – Saddleworth Morris, Britannia Coconutters, Wrigley Head Morris and Rivington Morris – who will be parading around the town with us.

We will start our grand procession from The Crown at around 10:00, and will be making our way to Bank Top Ale House on Church Street, then back to The Crown via The Bridge, Brownlow Road, V&A, Bowling Green, Original Bay Horse, and Black Edge Brewery. The aim is to get back to The Crown at around 14:30.

Look out for the posters around the town, keep an eye on our Facebook page, and our Twitter feed @horwichmorris

The sunny weather has been booked, the teams have been booked. We’d love to see you there.
