Leyland Folk Dance Club


Who are we?

We are a friendly group of people who enjoy dancing. We dance mainly English Country dances, both traditional and modern, with some dances from elsewhere in the UK and abroad. These include typical Barn Dance and Ceilidh dances as well as more sedate dances that you may have seen in films such as Pride and Prejudice. We meet on most Tuesday evenings at Moss Side Community Centre, Dunkirk Lane, Leyland from 7.30 to 10.00pm. If you are an experienced dancer, or a new dancer, you will be warmly welcomed. For more information, please follow the links on this page.

In addition to our Tuesday evening sessions we also run two Saturday evening dances each year. These, along with dances run by other local clubs and by Lancashire Folk, help to provide an extensive annual programme of dances across Lancashire, Greater Manchester and Merseyside.

In 1956, shortly after the Club started, it became affiliated to the English Folk Dance and Song Society. Club membership currently stands at about 50 and we usually get between 25 and 30 dancers at our Tuesday sessions. We have historical links with the Leyland Morris Men, and we are keen to keep the tradition of English Country Dancing alive and well in Lancashire.
