Whether you're an experienced dancer or brand new to the dancing scene please come and join us at our monthly ceilidhs/barn dances


LATEST NEWS: Our final dance of the season is a Contra dance with  London based band  Double Dichotomy, an exciting and talented band. Our Caller is the nationally known Mark Elvins. The interval entertainment is from Northamptonshire's own Royal Oak Morris.

April's Ceilidh was a great success with Will Hall and new Cambridge based band Passerida who combined well  for a splendid evening while St Katherine's Morris of Irchester gave their usual splendid and unique performance during the interval.

Traditional dancing for EVERYONE

About Us

We are a voluntary non-profit making organisation dedicated to the promotion of traditional Folk Dance in Northamptonshire. We are affiliated to the English Folk Dance and Song Society.

English Ceilidh is high energy mixture of traditional and other dances from Great Britain and elsewhere. We dance to live music from amazing bands who each play their own brand of traditional / fusion music.

Contra dances are American style dances which are often faster and more intricate than our Ceilidh dances.

Many of the moves, however, are common to both as both have their roots in the same traditional dances.

Another thing they have in common is that they are great fun to do and a fine way to meet new people and make friends. A bonus is that they keep you fit at the same time!
