Apollo’s Revels

Our third and final 2020 festival event with Apollo’s Revels was held last Sunday and proved to be a great success and much appreciated.

Dancers Kath Waters and Anne Deller, and musicians Alison Kinder and Linda Sayce gave a brilliant performance of music from the European Courts of the early 18th Century. The music informed the dance and the dance informed the music illustrating the close relationship of music to dance during this period.

The dance workshop in the morning was well received too

WEM is very grateful to the Elmley Foundation, Worcester Arts Council and to Border Marches Early Music Forum for their support
