The 2019 event is starting to shape up. The programme grows every year with lots of long-standing friends and also lots of new faces. Still a lot to organise but we already know that both days start promptly at 10:00 am with 'Early Bird' dancing led by Fiona Howarth. The non-stop programme of performances, workshops and social dances runs from 10:00 am to 11:00 pm on both days so have a big breakfast!

Workshops, Performances and Social Dances

Decide on your own mix of watching performances in the spacious upstairs hall and/or joining in the one-hour taster workshops in the two halls downstairs and in the dance marquee in the garden. On Saturday 26th, we stage the vibrant and colourful Latin-American evening in the big upstairs hall. At the same time, downstairs, there will be a social dance but the details have not yet been decided.  On Sunday 27th, the final wind-up for the festival will be an Anglo-International ceilidh with the fabulous Cloudburst International Dance Band. The evening will be led by the talented and highly experienced Anne Leach and Dave Kerridge.


Below are the ticket prices for last year, 2018. If we need to increase the price it will only be by a small amount. We keep the ticket prices as pow as possible.

£17 - each full day including the evening

£10 - evening only

£30 - weekend ticket

(£2 reduction for concessions)

Note that children get in free but must be accompanied by a paying adult.

Tickets will go on sale early in the summer.

As an example there are links to the 2018 programme at the bottom of the Home page. The 2019 programme will have the same general format but the details will be different. Many of the same groups will be back but there will be some new groups as well.
