Billingham International Folklore Festival

When is it? From 12 Aug 2016 until 20 Aug 2016.

Where is it? Billingham Town Centre, Billingham, Cleveland, TS23 2LS England

Every year, more than 300 performers from around the world bring a riot of colour to Billingham for the town's festival of international dance, music and song.

The event opens with a 'parade of nations', where the performers show off their national costume, followed by a week-long programme of dance performances and concerts in park and theatre venues. On the final evening, there's a gala concert, closing ceremony and fireworks display.

As well as the live performances, there are exhibitions, workshops and classes, including dedicated sessions for children. Kick your heels at a Hungarian dancing workshop, have a go at playing the Andean panpipes, shake it at an Egyptian belly-dancing session, or stick a rose between your teeth and start strutting the tango!

Each morning of the festival, children aged 4 to 14 can join 'Uncle Biff's Festival Club', hosted at a local school, and enjoy dance, music, craft and games with the international performers.

Tickets start from a very reasonable £4.
