English Folk Dance and Song Society

The English Folk Dance and Song Society (EFDSS) is the national folk arts development organisation for England. Through programmes of performance, participation and education at its headquarters, Cecil Sharp House in North London, and around England, it seeks to support artists and practitioners and engage people in folk arts activities.

The Society aims to place the traditional folk arts of England at the heart of our cultural life – enabling the development of skills and the transferral of knowledge, as well as providing an access point for participation.
