GUEST CALLER - Maggie Hosking
Maggie, born in North Wales, “discovered” folk dancing in 1990 after moving to Warwickshire – life changing. 'I’ve displayed from Scandinavia to Madeira and from Hungary to USA with Variations, English Lavender and Wayfarers – now their choreographer. I call at my club Milverton, Hampton Dances, Midland venues, the Southam Gathering and Alan Davies’ winter holidays.
I endeavour to bring enthusiasm, humour and clarity to the dance floor, and a Welsh dance often appears on my programme!'

Momentum: Thomas Bending, Ali Ellacott, Bill Keys and Meg Winters, met and so much enjoyed playing together in various places that they joined together to form Momentum in 2001, playing English music for traditional and country dances. Whether playing their extensive repertoire of classic tunes or exploring something different they look forward to playing for you, and enjoying a friendly weekend of light-hearted music and dancing.
