Rochester Sweeps Festival is an annual festival that takes place in the city of (you guessed it..!) Rochester in Kent. It takes place over the first weekend of May every year, and dancers from across the UK travel to perform, meet friends and have a few tankards of ale! As it states on the Medway website, “the festival is thought to be the largest congrgation of Morris dancers in Europe”. In other words, if you like morris dancers and morris dancing, this is a festival for you!
