Witcombe Folk Dance Club

Witcombe Folk Dance Club meets every other Wednesday at Witcombe Village Hall, halfway between Gloucester and Cheltenham.

What we do 

If you’ve been to a Barn Dance or Ceilidh then you will have some idea of what to expect. We dance traditional dances from all sorts of sources. These could include, in one evening, early social dances of the 17th Century, country-house dances of the 18th and 19th Century, village dances, modern dances of all sorts of complexity, some Scottish based dances, American contras and squares etc. The one thing that they have in common is that they are social dances designed to be enjoyed.

Meetings start at 8.00 p.m. and finish at 10.30 p.m. (occasionally 10.45 p.m. for a party).

Visitors or new members are always welcome whether in a couple or as a single (we have plenty of other single members).

We have over 40 members, with an average attendance of 28 each evening: visitors pay £4.00 each meeting, members £3.00. Membership costs £5.
