Hoblander Redcar Sword Dancers Boxing Day (11) Redcar Sword Dancers Boxing Day 17 Dec 09

Hello , Boxing Day 2009 will see the 43rd consecutive annual performance by Redcar Sword Dancers of the Greatham Sword Dance and Play, in Greatham (Greethum)village , near Hartlepool, just off the A689.We meet up in the Hope and Anchor for a hair of the dog, and to park the zimmer frames. The performance is at 12.00 mid-day outside the hospital gates, come hail, rain, snow or any other weather the elements can throw at us.
The dance and play are fairly unique from the point of view being one of the few Longsword dances which retained it's play, and also coming from County Durham, as the perception was that Longsword was a Yorkshire dance.
Come and help us celebrate the Dance and Play by being part of the loyal band of audience members and hecklers, and then afterwards back in the pub for a good natter and a brilliant singing session.
All the best to sword hoppers everywhere
