IVFDF 1970

This is the first time that IVFDF was held at Reading, and also the first time that it ran to two days as there was a ceilidh on the Friday night. The displays were in the Palmer Building.

  • The Playford Team


They are - Martin Johnson, Keith Broughton, John Leary, Bob Wheat and Angela Rowe, Pauline Bruce, Sheila Scullard, Sandy Wilby.

We danced Mr Shaw's Apologies. Pat was there as the guest of honour!

  • The English Team


How many names can you put to the faces?

There's Peter Cranness, Martin Cray, Steve Lewis, Jane Crump, Alan Pittwood, Chris Metheral, Liz Ware, Sandy Wilby, Brenda Johnson, Judy Banks, Sue Spraggs, Chris Miller, Felicity Luard, John Leary, Peter Gregory and Taff Dennison.

Here they are in action -


and again


This looks like The Willow Tree.

Then we have our Scottish Team


It's Stuart Ball and Brian Jones, with Dianne Elwin, Margaret Piper, Jackie Shepherd and Linda Stewart.

We went on to take a team to dance at the Sidmouth Festival that year!

The IVFDF website has a copy of the letter to clubs giving details of displays and also a programme for the evening dances.
