THE tradition of morris dancing will be alive and kicking in the region tomorrow.

Darlington's Great North Clog Morris will perform in the town's streets and at Stanhope Park outside the Arts Centre, which is hosting a Spring Thing event.

The team, which dances in clogs and colourful costumes, performs dances which have their origins in the mill towns of Lancashire.

As well as performing at fetes and fairs in the area, members have travelled all over the country.
