Why join EFDSS?

As an English Folk Dance and Song Society (EFDSS) affiliate, you will be one of our greatest advocates, helping us to carry on our mission of preserving and promoting the very best of English traditional folk arts. Your support also provides vital income that allows us to continue our work all over the country, in areas such as artist development and education.

Group affiliation is available for dance or song clubs, schools, festivals and any organisation that wishes to support the work of EFDSS.

Affiliates’ benefits include:

  • A full-colour quarterly magazine, English Dance and Song, providing news and reviews of what’s hot in the folk arts sector
  • Public liability insurance (folk clubs, groups and bands – by application only*)
  • The right to use our affiliate logo


*PLI is limited; our insurance may not cover your activities. Please contact us for more information.

How much does affiliation cost?

Group affiliation is available from £74.

Group affiliation is available by application only due to insurance limitations. Other types of affiliation are available if insurance is not required.
