Set and Turn Single is an essential resource for anyone interested in folk dancing. The main areas of the site are the Calendar which lists forthcoming events by date and the Directory which contains contact details for dance clubs, bands, callers, etc.


This includes "English" dances, Ceilidhs, Contra Dances, Balls and Workshops. We also list holidays and festivals for dancers.

To see what's on in the next few weeks click 'Quick event list' under 'Calendar' in the menu bar. This displays a list of events. Click the event title to show more details. You can jump to a different date using the date-picker at the side.The colours indicate the different categories.

If you want to find events near you, use the geographic filter next to the calendar listing. Enter a place name and the distance you want to travel. If the place name is ambiguous you may be offered a choice. Click the location you want, making sure you don't pick, for example, a location in the USA.

There is a menu item under 'Calendar' where you can search for an event. For example, if you want to see all entries for a particular band or club, just type the name in the search box and click 'Search'. The search includes all the words that appear on the event details page, apart from the actual address.

We also list regular club nights in the calendar. Some clubs add their events according to a formula like 'every second Tuesday'. In doing so, they may fail to account for public holidays or changed circumstances. So always check with the organisers before travelling.


The Directory lists contact details for clubs, bands, callers etc.

You can use the search box to look for any text in the entry. You can also apply a filter to select which category to display. Click a column heading to sort alphabetically. Click a name to bring up more details for that entry. There is also a contact form to send an email to the person or organisation concerned.
