The latest news from The Arbeau Dancers

We were pleased to be invited to help celebrate Capability Brown's 300th anniversary.  Although the precise date of his birth is not known, there is a record of his baptism - an event which traditionally took place close to the actual birth of an infant - on 30 August 1716 and August is widely accepted as his birthday month.

To mark this anniversary, celebrations and events took place around the country and we were delighted to be invited to demonstrate eighteenth century dance at Temple Newsam near Leeds.   Many people visited this beautiful house and grounds to join in the festivities, including the local news channel which broadcast this news clip.
