Disco With A Difference On Saturday Evening in “The Swift Marquee”
SILENT DISCO KING THE WORLD’S NO. 1 FOR WIRELESS HEADPHONE EVENTS
Originally, Silent Disco consisted of a few hundred people dancing to Abba whilst their mates were singing along to Mr Brightside. Whilst the classic “2 channel DJ battle” remains ever popular today, the concept of Silent Disco has evolved in every direction.
Now used as Main Stage entertainment at many festivals, headphone based entertainment has been embraced by credible artists, impressive brands, Hollywood A-listers and ambitious creatives around the world.
White Horse Morris will be performing in the Central area during Saturday afternoon & there will be an opportunity for audience participation for members who are keen to take part.
Over the years White Horse Morris Men developed a reputation as an excellent dance side offering dances from a range of mainly Cotswold traditions. They have toured extensively in the United Kingdom & Europe.
In September 2011 it was decided to make the side mixed, thus becoming White Horse Morris, so that they can now offer mixed & single sex Border & Cotswold Morris Dances, thus allowing them to carry on with their long tradition of excellent dancing.
Performing Saturday In “The Main Arena”
Meirion’s duck herding demonstrations are designed to showcase the amazing talents of border collies and the communication between handler and dog. His demonstrations are informative, educational and highly entertaining. They are also interactive, allowing hands-on adult and child participation. Meirion provides his own humorous commentary as he uses a combination of commands to guide his dogs and cooperative (and sometimes uncooperative) Indian Runner ducks around a course that includes tunnels, slides and pens.
