Folk Dance

A tried and tested formula in the Folk Dance programme with big mornings, challenging afternoons and fun evenings returns for 2022.

Big Mornings include American Dance with The Magnificent Seven, a bunch of up-and-coming English contra callers, with music by Contrasaurus and Nozzy.

English Dance will be overseen by Louise Siddons with music provided by Belshazzar’s Feast, Mollie Koenigsberger & Richard Jones.

Afternoon sessions feature Irish Set from Kevin and Carol Monaghan, with Will Allen. Danish Dance from Jeremy Newton and De Små Grå; Scottish Country Dance with Bridget Flett; and Early Dance and Music with Helen Richards and Eglamore. Beginners are in the safe hands of Sol Loreto-Miller, with music by Joshua Rowe.

Every evening there will be a full programme of English and American dances, the spectacular Playford Ball, an Irish Set dance ceili, Eurobal Nights including CentralBal, and a final Celebration Contra to round off the week.

The hardest part will be choosing what to go to! Stay tuned for updates on events.
