Morris dancing side Flagcrackers of Craven is staging a series of events to mark its silver anniversary.

A number of events involving other groups from across the country are due to take place across Craven at various iconic spots, including Ribblehead Viaduct and the top of Malham Cove.

And central to the celebrations will be a special festival of dance in Skipton on Saturday, June 15.

The Day of Dance is expected to include more than a dozen visiting teams presenting a marathon of dance displays such as Cotswold, Longsword, Rapper and Border. The festival, which is also set to include belly dancers, will conclude with a mass gathering at the canal basin in the afternoon.

The Flagcrackers are also looking for invitations to appear at events in its special 25th year.

The team meets on Wednesdays from 8pm to 10pm at the Farnhill Institute.
