The Inter-Varsity Folk Dance Festival (or IVFDF for short) is the country's longest continually running folk festival, aimed squarely at students (although anyone who feels they can keep up is welcome) and run by a different university each year. IVFDF is a non-stop weekend based (fairly broadly) around traditional forms of music and dance.
See the beginners guide to IVFDF for more information.
The next festival will take place over the weekend starting Friday 27th February 2009 at the University of Exeter. Online ordering has now closed. Tickets still available on the door, with plenty remaining for all events...
