Bring your picnic and enjoy the atmosphere! Bar and food available…

Set in the scenic grounds of Stafford Castle, come along and enjoy a daylong dance festival to mark the climax of Staffordshire’s first ever county-wide dance programme, offering the chance to learn a wide range of different dance styles, from break dance to ballroom and take part in music and craft workshops.

Hosted by Tim Wedgwood the Breathe the Beat Roadshow features a spectacular stage of free dance performances, including appearances from two of the UK’s leading street dancers – Brooke and Roxy from Plague Dance Crew, internationally acclaimed Retina Dance Company, showcases from over 30 Get Dancing groups across the county, local talent, youth and community groups, professional dance companies, and music from DJ Moyma.

No Fit State Circus Company is performing throughout the day in and about the grounds.

Can I just turn up? Yes! The event is free, you don’t even need a ticket, just turn up on the day and enjoy yourselves. Bring the whole family and have a lovely summer’s Sunday out surrounded by trees, flowers, dance and friendly people. There is a rolling programme across the day with professional companies performing each hour and closing the day. Turn up at any time from 2pm or come and go throughout the day as you please.
