Welcome to Set and Turn Single

Our 'What's on' calendar lists thousands of folk dancing events throughout the UK. We include a wide range of dance styles - English country dance, contra, Playford, ceilidhs and barn dances - as well as festivals and holidays.

Use the newly updated search tools to find events you're interested in. You can search geographically by entering your location and the distance you want to travel. Or select 'Search events' from the menu to find specific text. Use the drop-down boxes above the calendar to jump to different dates.

The directory section has contact information for folk dance clubs, musicians and callers. Find what you want using the search box and categories. Click on the column headings to change the sort order. 

Why not come along to a dance near you? Events are normally open to the public and welcome new visitors and beginners. If in doubt, you can ask beforehand.

There may be changes to events that we are not aware of. Please check with the organisers before travelling. Happy dancing.

Add your details to STS

If you're an event organiser, folk dance club, band or caller, you can publicise your activities via the Set and Turn Single website. It's read by a huge folk dancing community and it's completely free. 

Regular event organisers can register to add their events directly to the website. To tell us about clubs, performers and occasional events, please use the online forms to send us the details.

The Contact us page has links to all the forms you need.

STS Magazine

This website is the best place to find out about forthcoming folk dance events. There is also a printed magazine which is sent out regularly to subscribers, but this will phased out over the next few years. Event listings in the magazine are copied directly from the website. So you need to make sure your events are listed here first. To enquire about the magazine, please email the editor.
