Folk Association of South Hants

The Madding Crowd's West Gallery Music event has moved online!

On Sunday 28th February instead of the workshop we will be holding a Zoom Play/Sing from 2pm to around 3.30pm. Mike Bailey has kindly agreed to lead it and members of The Madding Crowd will be joining us on the screen. Mike will play recordings of favourite pieces we have sung at past workshops for us to sing or play along with at home - or just enjoy listening. It's not as good as the real thing but I assure you it does feel like we're all joining in together! Our supporters will be sent the joining details and all the necessary information about the music a week in advance. If you are not already on our FASH Supporters circulation list and would like to attend, please contact Daphne on info@fash.org.uk or phone 01243 531497 to register your interest.

If you are unfamiliar with Zoom, you can download instructions here.

Following the success of our last online dance with Madeleine Smith on Sunday 7th February, we are hoping to hold another Zoom dance in March or April, this time led by Nigel Close. He is also running his own online sessions on the first Thursday of every month, details of which are on our News Page together with information about any other online events that we know about.

Please see our Workshops page for information about past Zoom events as well as workshops that have had to be cancelled this season. We are of course hoping to be able to hold live workshops again in 2021/2022 and the AGM, which was to have taken place during the April 2021 workshop, will be held as soon as practicable.

Welcome to the Folk Association of South Hants website

FASH is a voluntary organisation of people who support Folk activities across our region. You can learn more about FASH by clicking here. We run music and dance workshops each year and would love to see as many newcomers at any of these events as possible. Everyone is most welcome but if you are a newcomer to folk dancing you will probably find it easier to learn the basics first at a folk dance club or ceilidh before trying the workshops. To find more about the clubs in the area, click on the menu above. We try and provide information on dance clubs, folk clubs who often have well know artists performing as well as singaround sessions, and Morris and other display sides. Read more
