SHOPPERS were in for a treat in Bury town centre as they enjoyed dancing and music as part of a large-scale celebration.

To mark their 25th anniversary, Morris dancers and musicians from Bolton’s Leap to your Feet, many of whom live in Bury, staged a huge event in the town centre on Saturday.

Throughout the day, visitors enjoyed Appalachian folk and tap dance and crown rapper dancing at four separate locations.

Performances were hosted at The Rock, the East Lancashire Railway station, at the Robert Peel statue near Bury Parish Church, and also at Kay Gardens.

To round off the event, participants hosted a circle dance at Kay Gardens, involving shoppers and spectators.

Organiser Steve Ingham said: “We had a brilliant day with more than 20 musicians and around 60 dancers taking part.

“Passers-by and shoppers seemed to be having a fantastic time.

“We had a mass dance at the end.

“We also had performances at the train station. It was wonderful for passengers arriving and leaving the station to watch.

“It was a great afternoon. I’m still recovering.”
