Ceilidh & other folk dancing in Sheffield

The Inter-Varsity Folk Dance Festival (IVFDF) is coming to Sheffield in 2018!  There will be contra, ceilidh, Playford and all sorts of other dancing!

Sheffield University CeilidhSoc run regular ceilidhs during university term time.  Non-students can also attend.

The local Well Dressed Band organise and play for their ‘Home-Grown’ Ceilidhs, often in partnership with community groups.

The Playford in the Pub dances take place once a month at Shakespeare’s pub.

Sheffield Eurosession – events and workshops featuring all sorts of European dancing and music

More high-energy contra dancing in England (within reach of Sheffield (sort of))

Leeds Contra run a series of three ‘Contra in the Fall’ events with well-known bands and callers, usually in September, October and November, plus one in May.

Two big monthly contra series in England are Alcester Contra (in Warwickshire) and London Barndance. Our bands and callers regularly feature on the programmes for these series, and they are well worth making the effort to travel to.

The UK Contra Dance Facebook page is a handy way to get udpates of the latest contra events news.
