OUR VENUE - Stonesfield Village Hall, Field Close, Stonesfield, Oxfordshire  OX29 8EF

The main Hall can accommodate up to 80 dancers, while the Club Room is a nice area for lunch being adjacent to the recently refurbished kitchen. The toilet facilities include showers. Next to the Hall is the Sports & Social Club that has a drinks licence. This is available to Dancers over the weekend. The adjacent Playing Field of around 8 acres has a nice area suitable for Tents or Caravans but anyone booking for this must be aware that access is restricted while Cricket is being played. We shall let all campers know the best times to get access. There is also a newly built 'Play Area' that includes a popular 'Zip Wire'. For obvious reasons Dogs are not allowed on the Playing Field. There is some space for a few units in the car park.

Please see our other pages for more information about our 46th Folk Dance Weekend - we are now taking bookings for what we anticipate will be a very popular event and with numbers limited it best to book early. The weekend rate is held at £52 until end of August. Payment may be made by cheque post-dated to 1st May 2018. Refund for cancellations after that date will be at the discretion of the organiser.

Below is the Booking Form. If using this form to book for the 2018 Folk Dance Weekend please note that for the time being we have only opened bookings for the whole weekend.
