Welcome to all …

At our meets we have a hall available each evening for folk dancing to live music and we share songs, poems and stories. If you play an instrument there are opportunities for you to join us in the band mostly using Pete Mac’s books. At times, when space is available, we share crafts and games too.

OUR NEXT MEET will be held at Carhampton Recreation Ground and Hall on the A39 near Minehead. A large flat field with access to toilets and showers and we have booked the hall for dancing and entertainment each evening. Blue Anchor Bay is within walking distance (or a short ride or drive) with beach walks, cafés and a West Somerset Railway station (40s weekend 14th & 15th). There is a bus stop just outside the entrance with buses to Taunton and Minehead and a useful local shop just a few yards away. Dates are Thursday 12th September for 4 nights. All C&CC members welcome. More details here.


35 units turned out to Beckford Village Hall for 5 days over the August Bank Holiday weekend and what a fabulous weekend it was. Thank you to everyone who came and took part.
