John Tyson, who is one of the organizers, especially recommends tomorrow's concert, which will include Renaissonics playing both Renaissance and Baroque dance music, as well as world-famous exponents of other dance styles. All events are free.
There are two events this weekend which could include performances if enough people wanted to go to them.
