IVFDF 2015

Thank you everyone who came, performed or taught! It was an absolutely brilliant weekend!

IVFDF is the Inter-Varsity Folk Dance Festival – The country’s longest continually running folk festival.index-3.png We warmly welcome folkies from around the globe and we really hope you’ll be there too! The Festival is particularly aimed at students, but it is open to everyone. Whatever style you go for, you’re bound to find like-minded people waiting to meet you. Over the years we’ve enjoyed a wide range of dances and ceilidhs including Scottish Country, Highland, Morris, Rapper Sword, Irish, and Playford and many, many, more.

If you’re up for a weekend of dancing, sessions, ceilidhs, live bands and lively songs then we’ll see you at Exeter University on 27th February – 1st March 2015.


1967, 1989, 1995, 1999, 2004, 2009 and now 2015!
