May to December 2020
Across the Hertfordshire districts of Dacorum, Three Rivers and Watford
#TAG is an intergenerational dance programme at venues across Dacorum, Watford and Three Rivers from May - December 2020 that will celebrate the Hertfordshire Year of Culture 2020. We want to celebrate your towns and stories by bringing them to life through dance.
It is all about PLAY!
