Lange Wapper
at Sword Spectacular 2008

Lange Wapper, from Antwerp, performing in the gala concert at the Sword Spectacular 2008 in York. The team was founded by the late Renaat van Craenenbroeck and performs a reconstructed dance based on a few accounts and Hieronymous Cock's engraving of Bruegel the Elder's painting “The Fair of St George's Day”. As well as the main team, Lange Wapper's women's and old men's teams participated. Click on a picture to see an enlargement.
