A dance performance is taking place on the coastline of Silverdale inspired by David Cox’s provocative paintings of the crossings of Lancaster Sands made during the 19th century.

A cast of professional dancers and participants from the local community re-imagine the stories and tales of those who once crossed the sands making a precarious journey between Lancaster and Ulverston in the pre-railway age.

Booking is essential for Longways/Crosswise at The Lots, Silverdale, between Thursday, September 27 and Saturday, September 29, 6pm.
