May Bank Holiday Barn Dance

Bishopswood village, which is the next village to us, organised a barn dance for the May Bank Holiday. There was a ceilidh band for the occasion and tickets included a generous Ploughman’s supper and apple pie.  It was well attended by locals from the surrounding villages and although some of the dances tied us in knots, especially one called “wringing the dish cloth”, we greatly enjoyed ourselves.

They are trying to make this an annual event now, which is a good idea as it is popular.  It is important to support events in the local community otherwise these things don’t happen!!  We also sometimes go to Churchinford village hall for barn dancing on a Tuesday evening which is a regular session but they don’t get so many people there as at this one.

  1. Looks like so much fun!!! I could never get my husband to go to one of these. He’s only danced with me once..and I very much treasure the memory, but I know that was it. He might sit and watch though. 🙂 So nice that you have this kind of community around you.

    • Well my hubby struggled to dance at our wedding but quite enjoys a barn dance so I am lucky. Yes our local community do organise these sort of things, its quite popular here.
