It would be a great shame if the Britannia Coconut Dancers, who dance and draw crowds all over the country (and even abroad), may face a future where they will no longer be able to dance in their own home town.

“We are the envy of the folk-dancing world. We can dance in Dublin on St Patrick’s Day or Yorkshire – but we can’t dance in our own town.” Neville Earnshaw. Britannia Coco-nut Dancers treasurer
