Stourbridge Medieval Fair at the Leper Chapel


This year we are focusing on Saturday dance sessions.

See the Dance Classes and Term Dates pages for more information.


The Society was founded in 1979 to encourage the revival and enjoyment of early dance. Classes are held at St. Mark’s Hall, Barton Road, Cambridge, England.

Teaching covers mainly Early Mediaeval, Renaissance, Tudor and Elizabethan dance as practiced at the courts of Europe in the 14th‐17th centuries. Some attention is also paid to dance styles of the 18th and 19th centuries. Most evenings finish with a dance from the Playford collection.Stourbridge_2014b
