A team of Morris dancers are set to mark 10 years together with a day of celebrations.

Rumburgh Morris Dancers will be performing at various locations around Bungay on Saturday, April 28, to mark the special anniversary.

They will be joined by nine other Morris sides on the day and will even be accompanied by the Bungay town crier.

Dancing will take place from 11am to 4pm.

Celebrations will continue at Rumburgh and St Michael Village Hall from 7.30pm onwards.

A licensed bar will be serving beer brewed especially for the occasion while The Keel Band provide a soundtrack sure to get everyone dancing.

A club spokesman said: “Following our celebration we will be up early on May Day to dance at dawn on Broome Common, as is the tradition to welcome the summer sun.

“We will then perform weekly throughout the summer until the autumn.”
