Join us for an evening of film and ceilidh dancing this December for the French Film Festival UK‘s Closing Gala.

The evening will begin with a showing of the 2018 film LE GRAND BAL, presented by director Laetitia Carton – an ode to the joys of dancing set in the countryside of France. Enjoy the film and then enjoy a dance yourself at a ‘Bal Folk’, or European-style Ceilidh, organised by EdinBal with music provided by Sheffield’s Emily Bowden and Simon Dumpleton – with a wide repertoire ranging from exquisite, sensual mazurkas to joyful, driving bourrées, their music transports the imagination, stirs the feet and uplifts the spirit.
