Cam-French - Traditional French music and dancing in Cambridge, UK
"Cam-French" is two things: a monthly session of traditional French music and dance, and a mailing list for the announcement and discussion of traditional French music and dancing sessions held in and near Cambridge, UK. We have a "welcome to Cam-French" leaflet which might be of interest.
Regular sessions are held 8pm-10pm(ish) usually on the last Wednesday in each month, in Grantchester Village Hall. Upcoming dates:
|26 March 2014||AGM and French Music/Dance Session||Grantchester Village Hall, Grantchester, Cambridge|
|30 April 2014||French Music/Dance Session||Grantchester Village Hall, Grantchester, Cambridge|
|28 May 2014||French Music/Dance Session||Grantchester Village Hall, Grantchester, Cambridge|
|25 June 2014||French Music/Dance Session||Grantchester Village Hall, Grantchester, Cambridge|
|30 July 2014||French Music/Dance Session||Grantchester Village Hall, Grantchester, Cambridge|
We've been rather low on numbers recently, to the extent that every session is making a loss. At the AGM it was decided that if numbers don't pick up by July, we'll stop running regular monthly sessions in this format. It's possible that instead we'd run one-offs, e.g. with booked bands, or music sessions at someone's house.
We're also listed in Webfeet which is worth a look for other events.
Here's a map to help you find Grantchester Village Hall - there's on-street parking nearby, but please don't block the access lane to the side of the hall! If you need a lift, please ask on the email list (see below) - there's probably someone who can help out.
All are welcome: you don't need to bring a dance partner. No previous experience is necessary, you'll be taught the basics - and maybe some of the "extras", depending on who's teaching! On club nights there's a fee of £2 each session to cover the hall charges (musicians go free). Or you could bring a musical instrument and play along.
To contact the human running the list, send email to Dave Holland <firstname.lastname@example.org>. To send Cam-French your flier/advert/gig request, please email email@example.com rather than sending it to the main list (we'll distribute relevant/interesting stuff to the main list).
