The Organizers

Gwyn & Jennifer Williams

Gwyn & Jennifer Williams

We have many years of experience between us dancing, calling, playing and organizing local dances and major events.  We ran highly successful dance weeks in Ely in April 2004 with Nightingale and Cis Hinkle calling, in 2005 with Wild Asparagus and George Marshall calling, and in 2006 and 2007 with Airdance and Lisa Greenleaf calling.  After a hiatus we ran this event last year to a sell-out crowd with Wild Asparagus playing with George Marshall calling.  Many people asked us to run it again in 2017.

This year the event is being co-ordinated by Gwyn Williams and Judy McDowell with help mainly from the Norfolk, Va contradance community, Pam Martin, Jennifer Williams, Bill Bunch, Kathy O’Hara, and Jim and Sue Webb.    We are responsible for making arrangements with the venue and with the performers.  In Ely we are further assisted by Rima Forrest, Adam Hughes and Ruth Hawksley.

Additional local help will come from dancers in the UK.

We are also always available and eager to answer your questions either by phone or by e-mail.

In Ely, where Gwyn was born, we are joined by many friends and volunteers who heartily welcome this group to their beautiful City of Ely and lend rich local knowledge. The title “City” in the UK is used for any town with a cathedral.
