IVFDF 95 logo

Was held at Exeter University, 24th - 26th February 1995

The liveliest and friendliest folk dance and music event of the year is happening soon. Forget Sidmouth's 40th anniversary, this will be the 45th consecutive lVFDF, making it the longest continuously running folk festival in the country;- not bad for an event held in a different venue, and organized by different people every year!

The reason for the continuing success of IVFDF is the policy of providing the best events at ridiculously low prices, and I am pleased to say it is a tradition which will be maintained this year at Exeter. With names like Gas Mark 5, Show of Hands, Committee Band, Wild Thyme, The Famous Five, Gordon Potts and Colin Hume we are sure of some great main events, and with people like Val Knight, Jackie Rawlinson, Alive & Kicking, Great Western Morris and Ross Allen leading the workshops, the quality is very evident.

Here is the working programme for this year to allow you to make the difficult decisions about which events to go to, and which ones to miss. As usual indoor camping is provided FREE of charge, and a wide range of food and drink will be available all day at student prices. So look out your sleeping bag, pack your dancing shoes and fill out the booking form for a great weekend.
