Here at Ryburn 3 Step we are trying to keep some activities going under the restrictions imposed by HM Government to combat the spread of COVID-19. Unfortunately, because of the need for ‘social distancing’, we are unable to offer any safe alternative to our Barn Dances.
We cannot say when we will be able to restart our monthly dance programme, but we will keep you informed here on the R3S website. Thank you for your support.

Barn Dances

Ryburn 3 Step “Barn Dances” in the Waring Green Community Centre run from October through to April, when we go off to Folk Festivals and occasionally on holiday.
