Learn folk music from your home, and join in with others in Devon, in a five week course starting this weekend.

Usually our orchestras meet together every week in three areas of Devon (Torbay, East Devon/Exeter and North Devon) but since the lock-down we have moved online to keep bringing you great folk tunes, in an accessible and fun way, from the safety of your own home.

Our next course of five weeks is available from Friday 5 June, new members are welcome, no experience necessary and you don't need to read music. Visit and click 'JOIN' to find out more.

Irish Dance - North Devon
I have been Irish dancing for 12 years and reached advanced level. I have performed in numerous shows and public demonstrations. I have recently moved to this area from East Anglia, where I ran and managed my own dance school, and so I'm very keen to continue my passion for Irish dance here in the north Devon area, by either offering lessons or getting involved in some groups or doing some demonstrations/displays. If you would like any further details please don't hesitate to contact me - telephone 07977698939, or email.
