Folk Association of South Hants




The next FASH workshop will be on 20th January, running from 10.30 until 3.30, at Twyford Parish Hall. This first workshop of 2019 is "Something Borrowed - Squares and Contras with figures from Modern Western Square Dancing", and will be called by Mike Courthold with music from Andrew Purkiss.

We hope to see you there.


Please ignore the error on page 9 of the December/January issue of 'Solent Waves'. In the advert at the top of the page, the title of the Mike Courtold's workshop is incorrect - it should be as shown in the announcement above.


Please note that the venue for the "English Tunes Session" is presently The Patform Tavern, now that Talking Heads has closed. It is believed that the Ukulele Session is moving to The 1865, and the Irish Session which was at the Talking Heads was moving to The Juniper Berry. However, we have just heard that the Juniper Berry session was a 'one-off' and this session has now moved to The Hobbit, 134 Bevois Valley Rd, Southampton, SO14 0JZ.


The Duke of Wellington's Dancers have relocated, and now meet at St. Denys Church, Dundee Road, Southampton, SO17 2ND, with a 7.30 start. They now meet Tuesdays and Thursdays, rather than just Thursdays, but the dates are irregularly spaced, so check their website if you have not been before.


If you are looking in our Dance Diary for The South Hants Playford Folk Dance Club, please note that they have changed its name and it is now The East Dorset Folk Dance Club.


Check out out our Dance diary for a choice of New Year's Eve ceilidhs/Barn dances in the area.
