Handsworth Traditional Sword Dancers performing at Crosspool Festival 2010 (video)

The warm weather may seem like a long time ago, but you can remind yourself of the summer with this video of Handsworth Traditional Sword Dancers performing as part of July’s Crosspool Festival:

The dance took place outside Stephen Hill Methodist Church on Manchester Road, opposite the Sportsman pub.

The video introduction is an animated version of the cover of the festival programme, originally designed by Joseph Bates and Max Rowlands of Lydgate Junior and Infant school respectively.
