BalFolk Bristol events

Our events are irregular, and pretty much always include live music and social dancing:

  • Bals – From time to time we book fantastic musicians from the UK, France, Belgium and beyond to play for dancing. We’ve hosted bals at venues like the Bristol Folk House and the Southbank Centre.
  • Workshops – We teach beginners workshops at our own bals and sometimes at other bals and festivals too. Though we reckon the best way to learn is to show up and give it a go.¬†
  • Clandestine mazurkas – Over the summer we meet up in parks and outdoor venues for ad-hoc gatherings (weather dependent!).
