Cancellation of Bakewell International Day of Dance 2021

We have sadly decided to cancel this year's Day of Dance, which was due to be on June 25th.  Even though Covid-19 restrictions will have mainly eased off, we feel we cannot take any risks involving the public or the dancers.  I know we said this last year, but we do intend to be back next year with our usual array of fantastic dance groups.


Keeeeeeep dancing folks wherever you are, and we hope to see you all next year.

The Bakewell International Day of Dance has gone from strength to strength and is now celebrating its 18th year - on Saturday 27th June 2020.   The picturesque town of Bakewell hosts a stunning celebration of world music and dance, heralding the start of Bakewell Carnival Week.  At 6 different locations around the town you can enjoy over 30 performances absolutely free.

Held on the same day as the Farmers Market and with local well dressings on show, it is a day out not to miss, so join the several thousand people who travel from  around the country to enjoy the dancing, colour and fun.
