2018/19 dances

Folk Dances / Ceilidh's in the Kendal Area

Welcome to this website.  It has come about as a result of frustration both in terms of finding local dances and of finding about multiple events on the same night.  Hopefully dancers can find events and bands / callers can check to ensure a public event does not clash with another local event.

Ravenstonedale folk dance group, a weekly group that meets at Newbiggin on Lune Village Hall (Thursdays 7.45 - 10.00 pm.  £2 a night).  They meet on Thursdays from September to April, except on the odd date
.  Contact; Chris Bland on 015396 24258 or liv_bland @hotmail.com.

Crook Folk Dance Group meet on Thursday nights at the Crook Memorial Hall.  For information please visit their website at; http://www.crookfdg.wordpress.com/.

Lancaster Eurodance meets the first Tuesday every month at 8pm, at the Gregson , Moorgate, Lancaster.  Folk dances from France, Brittany and Scandinavia and beyond.  There are experts there to lead you through the dances and an enthusiastic band (If anyone wants to join in, tunes are mostly fairly easy to pick up and sheet music is available). http://www.lancaster-eurodance.org.uk

There is a link page for bands, callers and regular dances i.e. Pheonix.  If you have more for me, just drop me an email.  Drop me a line if I have made a mistake or if there is another dance you would like to be included.

Happy dancing.
