Welcome to Chesterfield Garland Dancers’ website.
We are a women’s side who perform clog and garland dances from (mainly) the north west of England. We wear brightly coloured dresses, with beads, waistcoats, bloomers and, of course, clogs. The jingle sticks used are actual bobbins from Cromford Mill, with the addition of bells and ribbons.
We dance at well-dressings, carnivals, festivals, fetes, outside pubs, at residential homes and at stately homes. We regularly dance with other teams and as members of the Morris federation we are invited to events all over the country.
The dances are easy to learn and are a great way to keep fit and make friends. At the end of a hard day at work there is nothing that lifts the spirits more than dancing to live folk music.
Whether you want to come and see us dance, are interested in joining us, or just want to know more about us, use the links on this page for more information.
We are based in Chesterfield Derbyshire.
