English Folk Dance and Song Society

The English Folk Dance and Song Society has, for over a hundred years, worked to record, develop and promote the folk music, dance, song and traditions of England. With nearly 4,000 members and affiliated clubs and organisations, it is regarded as one of the premiere folk development and advocacy organisations in the UK.

Its aims are to develop its resources, namely the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library and Cecil Sharp House in order to maintain itself as a centre of excellence for the study, practice and dissemination of traditional English folk song, dance and music. It provides national and local outreach services in order to enable and increase access to the tradition.
