Wick had a treat today with a troupe of dancers from the Netherlands in the Market Square. the lively music and colourful period costumes brightened up the day that had just had a heavy downpour of rain at the start of the performance. Luckily the sun came out and the rest of the performance was in brilliant sunshine. The costumes are typical of the fashion worn around 1850-1875. The gentlemen wear knee breeches with long white socks, top hat and tails, gold or silver watch on a matching chain as a decoration. The ladies wear a rich coloured costume, the most impressive aspect is the head dress, jewellery worn in and around a lace cap, and it is all authentic. The lace caps are hand-made, each with a different pattern; they are dated from 1850-1900. Information from the Schermer Dansers web site http://www.schermerdansers.nl/english/
