Clog dancing at the Tip

news-800pxTreacle Eater Clog, a north west morris team based in Yeovil, will be dancing at the Tippling Philosopher at 8 p.m. on MONDAY 25 JUNE.

The tradition we dance originated in the old industrial Northwest of England, where it evolved as a processional dance, performed mainly in carnivals. The dancers dressed in brightly coloured clothing and were accompanied by a large band so that the dancers could hear the music above the din. Why not come and watch us?
