Dancing at Dawn on May 1st in Totnes Castle

Just as the sun was rising at around 5:40am on Sunday 1st May 2016, Dartington Morris Men once again danced at Totnes Castle. We were pleased to be joined by over 40 spectators, sharing a beautiful sunrise in a clear sky. 

In common with a number of Morris dance teams elsewhere in the UK, we dance at dawn on May Day each year to mark the beginning of our summer dance programme. 

We love to dance the sun up at various lovely spots across South Devon, and have done so from places such as Dartmoor tors and coastal locations like Burgh Island. This year we have chosen once again to dance in Totnes Castle, one of our favourite spots for May Day (with the permission of English Heritage).
