Videos of the St George's Day celebrations in Sheffield 2013, Morris Men and Giant dancers.

This is a set of videos I took of the 2013 St. George's Day celebrations in Sheffield City Centre.
They performed in various places such as in front of Sheffield town hall, the Peace Gardens and Barkers Pool. They attracted a large crowd of people, visitors and locals alike. Look out for them next St George's Day in Sheffield.

The Sheffield City Giants you can see here in two of my videos were presented to the Lord Mayor of Sheffield, who accepted them on behalf of the City on 4th July 1992. They had been created by the Catalan Giant maker, Jordi Grau (honoured in the dance Jordi's) under commission from the Sheffield Festival to produce a pair of giants according to the theme of the festival 'Life and Death'. It was, however, contrary to Catalan custom to represent Death and with this in mind, the theme was altered to 'War and Peace'.

Best watched at 720p/1080p fullscreen (if your system/net connection is up to it).
