The hall is situated near to the traffic lights at the junction of the A3052 and A375 at Sidford, on the outskirts of Sidmouth.

There is adequate on-street parking. Access is either down Drakes Ave or Warrens Mead, as shown.

We would welcome lots of new members for 2018!

Why not give it a try?

Dance instruction is available! You don't need a partner - you can just turn up.

The ages of our dancers are typically 50 to 70 but all ages are welcome.

Dance evenings start at 8pm and end at 10.15pm.

Sidford is also home to another small folk dance club. This meets on Fridays at 7.30pm in St Peters Church Hall (entrance down England's Close, opposite Hamilton Garage, see map above). This is mainly for older, slower dancers.
