43 amazing people have contributed a very generous £1570 towards our crowdfunding project, that’s 78% of our £2000 target and we’ve just 16 days left to go.

Or in other words, just over two weeks of funding updates and polite requests for a contribution left to go.

The link to assist with the project is – https://igg.me/at/dancingengland/x/12399537 if you’d be up for continuing to seeing Dancing England rise again. Perks are available!

Liking and Sharing the Facebook Page and our regular updates is key to spreading the word and is much appreciated. Perhaps you could download this PDF  What is Dancing England and email it to all your folkie and trad dance friends and contacts? Or invite people to Like the Page?

In other news, we’ve had a yes from some morris men types, and a very nearly yes apiece from a Longsword team and a rather unique English clog team. A ceilidh band with some most excellent names has been sorted too. Plenty yet to do and more updates to come. We’ll release act names in due course. Tenterhooks we know.

And finally, we’re still on the hunt for photos and the like from 1979 to 1987, if you have anything in the loft or in an old photo album, please dig it out and share it with us? We’ll credit you of course.

Please do keep coming back and reading our updates. It’s appreciated!

Until next time
