What are they?

The Knees Up Cecil Sharp Ceilidhs provide interesting and energetic evenings of folk dancing. They present a mixture of established and up-and-coming bands mostly playing in the English ceilidh style. A favourite was The Committee Band which was founded to play for these dances. We aim to cater for both experienced dancers and for newcomers; a caller explains each dance and dancers walk it through beforehand.

Practical details

Knees Ups take place monthly on the third Friday of the month (except in July and August).

Each dance begins at 8pm and finishes at 11pm. Admission is 12.00 per person (10.00 concessions). Tickets are available:

The venue is:

Kennedy Hall (the main upstairs hall)
Cecil Sharp House
2 Regents Park Road

My Cecil Sharp House page describes how to get there. There is a licensed bar serving real ale and food is normally available before the dance.
