Two Headed Sheep is a morris dancing group based in West Cumbria. They had a busy season last year from Easter through to Halloween dancing at various venues including pubs, Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway, Whitehaven Harbour and Muncaster Castle.

They start their season each year at Easter, sometimes surrounded by snow, others in warm sunshine. May 1st they meet at Kinniside Stone Circle at 4.30am to dance up the sun. They are often joined by on-lookers who are welcome to join in their breakfast at the circle. The season continues until Halloween where they join in the spooky happenings covered in lights, dancing in the dark at Muncaster Castle.

Throughout the year they collect money for Wasdale Mountain Rescue. New members, both musicians and dancers are always welcome. Members range in age from 8 to 70, men and women, so if you fancy keeping fit in a fun way, come to the practice which is held throughout the winter at Haile Village Hall, Monday nights from 7.45p.m. or telephone Hilary 01946824746 or Catherine 01946728908.
