Lancaster University Folk Music and Dance Society formed in November 2014.

We hold dance sessions, folk song and tune sessions, and music sessions each week. Anyone is welcome to join us and, unless specified, all sessions are free after you’ve joined. Folk dancing and music is fun, very social, an excellent way to relax, and we are a very friendly group welcoming all dancers and musicians. You don’t need a partner or experience. Hope to see you soon!
