The Inter Varsity Folk Dance Festival has been an important feature of the Spring term since 1951. This makes it the longest running festival in the UK!

IVFDF has its own very comprehensive website, so if you have any relevant pictures, programmes etc, do please send them a copy as well as uploading one here.

IVFDF was held at Reading in 1970, 1982, and 1987 so we would be particularly pleased to see pictures of those events.

Note: this page has been split up as it was getting too big. There is now one page per festival. Please create more if you have pictures to add for a festival that is not already listed

At Strathclyde: that was a horrendous journey in freezing conditions. We got through OK but many of the other teams from England were severely delayed when their coaches broke down on Shap due to freezing fuel lines.
