Events this year we hugely disrupted globally as a result of Covid 19. We did manage to create a Stepdancing Film which captured dancers across the region. See below for more details.

The event below has been rescheduled to 2021 April 24th

2020 Stepdance Day and Strumpshaw Tree Fair has gone Virtual!

Covid 19 and the Lockdown may have prevented this event from running physically, but the organisers of Strumpshaw Tree Fair have worked hard with their contributors – producers and performers alike – on bringing you a virtual Fair. Friends of EATMT have created a short film to add to the virtual event which will beavailable to watch on the Strumpshaw Tree Fair Facebook page. Then over July we will be visiting a small number of steppers across East Anglia with a view to putting a slightly longer film showcasing this very East Anglian Tradition. We are very grateful to The Instep Team for enabling the Trust to work around 2020’s difficulties who are supporting Stepdance Day for the second year.

The EATMT stepdance film which incorporates Fiona’s workshop created for the Strumpshaw Tree Virtual Festival can be viewed HERE.

Sadly this event is now cancelled for 2020

We have booked our pitch for FolkEast 2020 21/22/23 August and hope to get more involved over the weekend.  Watch this space over the next year for more updates.
