The University of Northumbria are undertaking a major research and information initiative with the College of Charleston in South Carolina, USA. The project is studying the influence of the English Diaspora in North America and will sponsor cultural events on both sides of the Atlantic to promote shared knowledge and understanding of each other’s cultural heritage.

Hexham Morris Dancers are delighted to be involved with the project and to give live representation of 'folk' influences. They will present various English Dance forms, and be involved in the educational aspects of the Festival via a show which links the dancing to historical events and geographical locations in addition to various lectures and workshops. The latter may be presented to a wide range of people from academics to school age children.
