About Us

Aims and Objectives:

  1. Hold 2-3 ceilidhs for Folk Society members in Terms One and Two, as well as at least 1 in Term 3.
  2. Provide a wide range of fun, engaging events for our members.
  3. Spread Folk culture as best and as widely as we feasibly can, getting a range of people to experience and participate in it.

We are a society of passionate dancers and musicians celebrating all things Folk. The folk tradition is inclusive and welcoming and we're no different. Regardless of ability or experience, if you’ve got energy, you’re perfect! The society originated as the Folk Dance Society 60 years ago, today we not only dance, but also hold music and song sessions, run dancing workshops and are the home of Pigasus, the FolkSoc Ceilidh Band.

The most musical of our members form Pigasus, who play for our termly ceilidhs. Pigasus can also be hired for external gigs and are always happy to play for events elsewhere in the University. New members are always welcome!

In 2015, we hosted IVDVF (the Inter Varsity Folk Dance Festival), and hosted its smaller sibling festival ICBINI (I can't believe it's not IVFDF) in 2016.
