Barnsley Longsword Dance Team - Traditional Folk Dancing

Perform traditional dances of Yorkshire and Northumberland. 

The team has performed across the country and in Europe since it was formed in 1968. Practice nights are Tuesday in The Longcar Inn on Racecommon Road from 20.30. 

Although we are a male team, we will teach others of any age and gender if requested. Our main interest is maintaining these traditions in Barnsley and performing in our locality and further afield.

We are regularly asked to perform in various parts of Britain but to do this we require members to boost our number. 

If you are interested in joining us and enjoying the exercise associated as well as being a performer, contact us on the attached numbers or turn up at practice. If the dancing is not for you but can play an instrument, you can learn the tunes and accompany the dance.
