French folk dancers met their British counterparts during a dance-off in Sutton last weekend.

Dance group L’Aubade de Quercy, from Sutton’s twin town Gagny near Paris, joined Pennyroyal Clog Dancers and the East Surrey Morris Men in Trinity Square on September 17.

The group specialise in traditional French folk dancing, similar to Morris Dancing, and wore traditional costumes for the High Street performance.

Women from L’Aubade de Quercy also gave a demonstration on how to make lace, which is traditional in that area of France.

Before the performance Richard Clifton, Mayor of Sutton, welcomed the group to the Mayor’s Parlour and presented the dancers with an emblem made from lace and a copy of the borough’s coat of arms.
