Bristol Fashion perform social dances drawn from traditional, Playford style and contempory dance collections and English, Welsh and American sources. We practice between September and June at the Trust Hall, Stoke Gifford, Bristol, England, from 8.00 p.m. onwards and appear at festivals, fetes and out on the streets, busking.
In addition, we have group holidays (the Loire Valley last time around), social events and lots of fun!
Here, you can see some of the team practising up at the Whitby Festival.
Bristol Fashion are an affiliated club of the English Folk Dance and Song Society (EFDSS).
Please treat these dates as maybe containing errors in time, place, existance, etc.
Our musician, Chris, and dance director, Aurea, have their own web site, which can be found here. As you can see, their services as barn dance musician and caller are available for hire. Please contact them directly if you have any booking enquiries or further questions.
You can find out about some other local folk activities through the Hobgoblin Newsletter but for a complete listing of all things folkie happening in and around the area formerly known as the County of Avon, please visit The Avon Folk Diary.
Have a look at the Bristol Jack in the Green page.
If there are any terms you don't understand, then go and have a look in The Folk File (I can't be bothered to put links in from every word!!).
