Barn Dances

Our Barn Dances are held on the third Saturday of the month from October through to April, when we go off to Folk Festivals and occasionally on holiday. Dancers of all abilities are welcome, the main requirement is enthusiasm!

Time: Barn Dances start at 8pm and continue to around 11.30pm unless otherwise stated.

Venue: Our usual venue for the Barn Dances is the Waring Green Community Centre, Garden Road, Brighouse HD6 2AX (map)
Please check the venue for individual events on the EVENTS page.

Entry price: £9 (£8 Concessions)

In addition, Ryburn Longsword organises “Ripponden Village Dances” (29 September and 9 December) in the Victoria Hall, Ripponden, and one of our regulars, Dave Webster, runs both an early season dance and a late season dance at the same venue. See individual events for details.

The R3S 2017-8 Barn Dance  season begins on October 21st with Phoenix and Baz Parkes.
