The Alcester Folk Dance Group

is a friendly group of people who meet weekly to enjoy traditional English and American dances using live and recorded music.  
  • Times and Venue

The club meets on Wednesday evenings at Great Alne Memorial Hall, Henley Rd, Great Alne B49 6HL (see maps at bottom of page) from 8 - 10pm, during school autumn and spring term time. There is a free car park with ample space close to the hall.

  • Suitable for beginners

Everyone is made very welcome and full instructions are given by the 'caller', so you don't have to be an expert. The emphasis is more towards a happy social evening with friends rather than achieving a perfect 'do-si-do your partner' or other fancy footwork. You don't need a partner; many of the members are 'singles', and the dances are designed to get everyone involved.

  • Musicians welcome

For part of the evening our resident band provides lively and varied music, under the leadership of one of several experienced barn dance band leaders. The musicians arrive at 7pm, sheet music is provided and our instruments include fiddles, recorders, guitars, accordions and clarinet. Here is a short sample of a tune we play - if it's your sort of music we'd like you to join us!

  • Costs

There is no membership fee to join the club. We each pay 3 per evening; this also covers the cost of the refreshements provided at the interval. At the end of the year all profits are donated to the Lifeboat Association (RNLI).
