Haslingfield & Harston Folk Dance Club

New members always welcome for a fun evening of dancing, a bit like a barn dance. We usually meet on Tuesdays between 8pm and 10pm every month (except July and August) at either Haslingfield or Harston Village Hall.  It costs just £1 per evening.

It doesn’t matter if you have never done it before, our expert callers stand on the stage and tell us all what to do. New members are always welcome, and you do not need to live in the villages. You do not need to bring a partner. We just come to have fun – we do not take “getting it right” very seriously.

All the dance dates are in the calendar. For more information, click here or phone Clive on (01223) 870741.
