Bristol Contra: Bearded Dragons, Charlotte Rich-Griffin

Bristol Contra Dance is a communal-style folk dance very similar to a Ceilidh. No partner or experience is necessary. A caller leads the dancers through a series of moves. All calling is gender free.

Charlotte Rich-Griffin cut her teeth at Warwick University, but has grown to call up and down the UK.

Playing for us are Bearded Dragons, Vic Smith and Benjamin Rowe. Whilst they sometimes play Techno Contra, this incarnation will be mainly acoustic. Still high octane, so rest up the Thursday before.

We are remaining at our shiny venue, the Faithspace chapel. It's nice and close to Temple Meads and comes with free parking!

They'll be tea, coffee and nibbles available in the break and maybe even entertainment.

Bristol Contra is committed to not having the cost of a dance be a hindrance to anyone attending. Suggested prices available on the door:
Students £6
Adults £10
Supporters Ticket £15.

The new supporters ticket is a fair representation of what the event costs to run, and supports fair fees for the Band and Caller. It is entirely voluntary.

So bring your smiles and your joy and come join us for amazing social dancing. Absolutely all welcome of any level of experience for great dancing to some amazing gender-free calling and brilliant music!
