This is the Wessex Area of the Folk Dance & Song Group, a special interest section of The Camping and Caravanning Club . Our members are people of all ages who enjoy folk music, singing, dancing, crafts, or simply camping and caravanning.

The group meets regularly in a range of locations throughout Wessex (Berkshire, Dorset, Hampshire and Wiltshire), usually over a weekend.
