Health warning- dance lengths

Following suggestions from your feedback forms
contras at Mixed dances will be 7-9 times only
and at American sessions will be longer for those with stamina to enjoy!


Draft programme for ticket holders

To help you choose your workshops, look for more information under each caller's name for both Social and International dance.

A draft programme will be emailed to all ticket holders during Easter weekend.  Last minute changes will be posted on the notice board in  St Catherine's Main corridor.

Welcome reception for newcomers to the festival

We're looking forward to welcoming newcomers in the CHILL OUT ROOM at St Catharine's (Bishop Bell) School at 7pm on Friday 28 April after ticket collection.  This is a social occasion for you to meet each other, the organisers and any callers or bands who are not busy setting up for the evening dance.

It gives you a chance to ask questions and IS NOT COMPULSORY!

At 7.45pm, a steward will lead the way to Langney School and Langney Village Hall so that you don't miss the beginning of those dances if that's where you would like to be!

We are delighted that so many people are attending who have not been before. See you soon!
