Brian Carter  -  Eastbourne Folk Dance Club Treasurer

The weekly meeting of the Club is held on Thursdays from 8.00 p.m. to 10.00 p.m. at St. Andrews Church Parish Hall, rear of 360 Seaside, Eastbourne, EAST SUSSEX (behind the Arlington Armsa Public House)

We also hold two or three Saturday Socials and a New Years Social during the year in addition to the regular Thursday sessions.

We have approximately a dozen different callers who take it in turn to run an evening and instruct us in the various dances. We hold occasional callers night where members of the club have a go at teaching dances.

Our membership is very steady with around 30 to 40 people on the books, some 20 or so attending on most weeks.


Membership is £4.00 per annum, and the entrance fee on club nights is £2.50.
