Tudor dancing

On Bank holiday Monday (29 August) Wymondham Abbey will be rejoicing in the sights and sounds of Tudor dancing.

Performances will take place in the centre part (nave) of this magnificent historical building which will be cleared especially for the event.

Under the title ‘Kemp’s Jig’, the dances will be performed by Norwich Historical Dance. It will feature dances from the plays of William Shakespeare, whose death 400 years ago is being widely remembered and commemorated.

There will be three performance at 2pm, 3pm and 4pm, and each will include audience participation. Music will be provided by Minstrels Gallery, a well-known local troupe playing on authentic instruments.

Entry to the event is free, just turn up and have fun. There will be a retiring collection in aid of the Priscilla Bacon Lodge, a centre for specialist palliative care.
