Broadside Day 2021 - Call for Papers

For more than 10 years, the Broadside Day, organised jointly by the Traditional Song Forum and the English Folk Dance and Song Society, has been the gathering place for people interested in street literature and cheap print - broadsides, chapbooks, prints, tracts, penny histories, woodcuts, and so on.

Folk Song in England with Steve Roud

Steve Roud is widely recognised as one of our foremost authorities on folk song. Join him, with the English Folk Dance and Song Society, for this series of six evening online seminars on the social history of traditional song and singing in England up to about 1950 (when the post-war Folk Revival changed things dramatically).

Reopening Postponed Again
