Having decided, some time ago, that we would return to Kennington on Sat 8th Jan 2022, it now seems a strange time to be letting you know about our plans for our first ceilidh there since March 2020. We are delighted that the wonderful Diatonics and caller Hannah Moore will be our first act at Kennington. We know some people are really keen, whereas others would love to dance at Oxfolk but have to remain more cautious. So, let's talk about the difficult things first.

We know that we need to keep everyone who wants to come to our dances as safe as possible. Our safety guidance for everyone attending is this:
1) If you have Covid symptoms please don’t come. If you have bought a ticket, we will refund you, no questions asked.
2) All of Oxfolk’s volunteers will have done lateral flow tests in the 48 hours (ideally with in the hours before hand) before the ceilidh to keep you safe, and we ask you to do the same. Home-test kits are free, and available here: https://www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow... (also available to collect from many pharmacies).
3) We are using the Covid Pass, because we are legally required to, as the law stands at the moment. More details are available: https://www.nhs.uk/condi.../coronavirus-covid-19/covid-pass/
4) We are restricting the number of tickets we sell.
5) The hall will be ventilated.
6) Sanitizer and hand washing facilities will be available.
As government guidance still permits ceilidhs, we are currently planning to run this dance. However, this is a fast changing situation, and if we need to postpone we will do so. We plan to review safety on 5th Jan, and will let you know in good time if we postpone.
Please keep an eye on our social media for updates. In the meantime, tickets are on sale here: buytickets.at/oxfolkceilidhs/


Oxfolk is a long-running ceilidh series that is currently based in Kennington Village Hall, just outside the Oxford ring road and a few minutes from the A34. Dances run from October to May on the second Saturday of the month, although the April dance is usually run in conjunction with Folk Weekend: Oxford, so doesn't follow the normal pattern.
