On Saturday 4th June, seventeen children from Hamp Academy Dance Club attended the Somerset Folk Dance Festival in Wells on the cathedral green. This was the 40th year that this event has taken place, and was met by crowds of spectators who watched the children in a procession from St Cuthbert’s Church up the high street towards the cathedral. The children had been practising the dances during the afterschool club on Thursday’s, and performed nine dances in front of the cheering crowds, along with forty-nine other schools from across Somerset. All children were incredibly well behaved and danced exceptionally in the heat! We are very proud of what they have achieved.
