Procession and Dancing in Victoria Park


The procession is a highlight of the programme on Saturday, attracting a large number of spectators. Many choose to follow the procession up to Victoria Park where a dance display will take place once the dancers have got their puff back! This is where the dancers who have attended on the day have the opportunity to show off their favourite
or most impressive dance. Always very popular, it is an excellent opportunity to see a snapshot of all the dance styles performed at their very best against the spectacular natural scenery of the Holme Valley. This will bring the day’s dancing to a close.


Route: Memorial Gardens, Station Road, Town Gate, Hollowgate, Toll House Bridge, Woodhead Road, Cooper Lane, Victoria Park.
