“Festivals are a traditional part of the English folk calendar and I am very pleased that EFDSS will be involved in several of them in one way or another this summer.

“As well as supporting emerging artists and programming stages, we will have EFDSS commissioned performances at festivals, dance and children’s events.”
Katy Spicer, Chief Executive of EFDSS
