Cam-French - Traditional French music and dancing in Cambridge, UK

"Cam-French" organises occasional French music and dance sessions, and has 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.

Welcome to summer! Our next session is Saturday 30th November 2019 at Grantchester Village Hall (Vicarage Drive, CB3 9NF). We will be dancing and playing from 2pm until 5pm. Cost will be £4 waged, £2 unwaged for both musicians and dancers.

All instruments are welcome - we will be playing tunes from the usual collection - do send in your requests!

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. Hope to see you there!
