Newcastle Kingsmen &

Born in 1949 for one purpose: to dance rapper (...and some Longsword and North West Morris and play tunes, sing songs and drink beer), The Kingsmen and Kingsmen Clog have been regular visitors to the festival over the years, because they're great! We hear the Clog side have a surprise planned for our Monster Mash Cabaret and we honestly cannot wait. 

The Kingsmen have been overall winners of the DERT (Dancing England Rapper Tournament) in 1999, 2007-2010, 2012, 2015-2017 and 2019. They have also won comic character and musicians award on several occasions.
