Ruth writes: Yes, we have lots of British culture in Toronto. Coming up is a concert of Cornish Music. Every May Day and Labour Day, Morris Dancers liven up the city. At least twice a month, you can learn English country dancing Jane Austin style. See. http://torontoenglishdance.ca/. We have Scottish dances as well. We have Robbie Burns Day complete with haggis and a Robbie Burns statue. One of our most popular events is the British Isles Show. https://www.torontomulticulturalcalendar.com/2015/07/14/494-update-on-the-british-isles-show-2015/. And there’s much more.
