Reading Balfolk March Bal

European Traditional Dance & Music for All

This month we have a workshop from Jessica Abrahams, who will be teaching us some unusual waltzes; and a guest slot from Metadrone Trio with hurdy gurdy and bagpipes.

The workshop runs from approximately 12.40 to 1.40pm. Then a bring-your-own indoor picnic lunch (with tea and coffee on hand), followed by a bal with live music from around 2pm. Music by the Shivelight Duo (Harriet Power and Sam Doolin), Metadrone, and friends.

£6 for workshop & bal, pay on the door

Note: the event is in the hall at the back of Watlington House - entrance through the large gate on South Street. There is limited parking, in the Watlington House car park (off South Street) or on the front yard (Watlington Street) - to avoid doubt, you can use the Queen's Road (paying) car park only 5 mins walk away: Check your route first, as Reading has a major-level one way system! For those coming by train, see here for routes from Reading Station:

SEE ALSO: our associated European Tunes Session, on the first Thursday of each month, at the Butler, Chatham Street, Reading, 8.30 - 11pm. Come and learn the Balfolk repertoire, or just enjoy the music.
