HOW TO FIND OUR VENUE

A very warm welcome to all the competitors and of course to the associated schools, teachers, parents and helpers who are here for our third annual North Somerset Festival of Dance. We thank both those returning and those competing here for the first time and hope you enjoy being part of NSFoD 2018.

 

The Committee would also like to express its deepest appreciation to Clevedon Community Centre for their support in continuing our festival and to Brunel Engraving for their expert services.

 

North Somerset Festival of Dance was founded after the dance section of the ongoing Weston Junior Arts Festival in Weston-Super-Mare came to an end. We simply couldn’t let that legacy disappear forever!

 

Our last festival saw six fabulous days of dance, honouring the  tradition and links established over many years whilst adding new elements in the hope of creating a modern and congenial event. This year we are excited to have received even more entries, enabling us to extend to a week and ensuring the continuation of a dance festival in the area.

 

We are delighted to be coming back with full membership of the prestigious All England Dance and The British & International Federation of Festivals.

 

 

Our 2018 Programme will be available to buy in May
