Ganderflankers is the special performance troupe that accompanies Bradford on Avon’s giant Jack in the Green as he makes his grand entrance into the BoA Green Man Festival every May, next year on Saturday 14th May 2021.
Covid forced us to abandon the event for 2021 so instead Jack and his Ganderflankers’ musicians will be touring the town centre, tithe barn and pubs between 11am and 4pm on Sunday 30th my 2021.
We are recruiting dancers – lots of dancers. It will be Morris dancing but not as you know it. We have a unique, theatrical style weaving dance, music, song, beasts and narrative into a mini saga, involving Jack in the Green, a black dog and Westbury white horse. Our influences draw on Border Morris and Mummer’s Plays.
Everyone is welcome but we are particularly seeking experienced dancers from existing dance groups to join us for this special once a year performance. More here.
