Loose women

Loose Women was born in 1977 when an advert went out asking for Loose Women needed for a respectable pastime!

In fact their name comes from the village of Loose just to the south of Maidstone, Kent . They dance their own interpretation of border morris , with lots of spinning and whoops and yells.

Each year Swanage is filled with a music and dance spectacle,
including FREE and ticketed events across the weekend.
