The EDC Festival

Friday 21st to Sunday 23th October 2022

The 39th Early Dance Circle Festival took place in The Victoria Hall, Tring, Hertfordshire. NHD chose to represent Norwich’s status as a City of Sanctuary and celebrate the contribution of the many refugees and others who have made Norfolk their home including those who brought their weaving skills and canaries in the 16th century. It was great fun and wonderful to meet up with so many dancers from across the country.
