Dear Dancing Friends
What a fabulous Festival we had on the 13th July, to the music of Marian Anderson and her band. The weather stayed dry for us despite the forecast and we were able to enjoy dancing outside. The organising committee of the White Rose Festival would like to thank you all for coming and to invite you and your team of fellow dancers to take part in next year’s Festival.
