In 2008 a group of experienced theatre performers, musicians and dancers came together to explore a shared interest in folk dance and music. They soon realised they were onto something very special and The Bo Diddlers were formed. Using a blend of folk and contemporary dance, physical comedy and live music The Bo Diddlers created a spectacle that is uniquely mesmerising and hilarious.
They have since gone on to become festival favourites at Shrewsbury Folk Festival, The Beautiful Days Festival, Sidmouth Folk Festival and Shepley Spring Festival amongst many others. Their 2014 shows at The Place Theatre in London were greeted with delight by contemporary and traditional dance fans alike. CLICK FOR REVIEW
