The Little Big Canal Dance Band

Hits : 332
This is our first in-person event since the pandemic, and we want to make it joyful, safe and accessible for as many people as we can. It's *free* and part of Folk Weekend Oxford's one day folk festival in the town.
 
We are delighted to welcome The Little Big Canal Dance Band: Jane Griffiths and Colin Fletcher (Owl Light Trio), Jon Fletcher (Magpie Lane) and John Ruddock (Xogera). They are consummate musicians who love playing for dancers.
 
Jane Bird will call fun dances that work in small groups, and is really keen to welcome dancers of all ages. An outdoor dance seems like a really good way to return to dancing in-person, especially as we know that for some this will be the first ceilidh in 18 months. Come and dance every dance going, or grab a coffee and watch. Most importantly it will be great to see you!
 
Faringdon is well served by the S6 (Oxford to Swindon) bus, which runs every 30 minutes during the day, and drops at Faringdon Market Place:
