2016 Dates

So far this year, on 14th May, the Giants have performed at the Hebden Bridge Folk and Roots Festival . We took part in town spaces open to the community and were well received.

Previously, in April, the Giants would usually have performed in Sheffield to celebrate St George's Day,  involving several other teams dancing at various locations around the town and all together in a mass dance in front of the Town Hall. Unfortunately there were circumstances which prevented the Giants and several  other teams from taking part. (A representative display was put on by Sheffield City Morris and Sheffield Celebrated Clog Dancers.)

Provisional dates for the subsequent public appearances of the Giants:

  • Sunday, 26th June - Concert with Sheffield Symphony Orchestra at the Octagon, Sheffield
  • Saturday, 9th July - Stannington Carnival.
  • Sunday, 17th July - Sheffield Manor Lodge Open Day.
  • Sunday, 31st July - Saddleworth Yorkshire Day Celebrations.
  • The Giants usually take part in  Kelham Island Christmas Market, on the first Saturday and Sunday in December.

If you are organising a festival or event and would like to explore the possibility of a visit from War and Peace, please contact us.

Regular practices:

3rd Sunday of each month, 11.00 am at Kelham Island Industrial Museum.

NB  Invitations to events come in on a regular basis. Please contact us before
