Heritage show explores 200 years of Margate dance history

A special event documenting 200 years of dance in Margate is taking place at the Lido Cliff Bar.

Dance troupe Round in Circles are hosting The Xanadu Legacy after their most recent show saw the team conduct interviews, dance workshops and archival research in order to inform their production.

Tales from Frank's nightclub and the celebrated Bali Hai were recreated in the show as well as a 200-year-old regency dance called 'A Trip to Margate.' The show named In Search of Xanadu was performed at the former Store Twenty One on the High Street.
