Cecil Sharp House

The home of the English Folk Dance and Song Society, this soaring building from 1930 hosts concerts by artists ranging from Mumford & Sons and Laura Marling to the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain, as well as family barn dances and céilidhs (Irish barn dances). Meet the locals at drop-in classes to learn a variety of dance styles, such as morris, baroque, Irish step dancing, zydeco, and the tango. There are also temporary exhibitions on British folk arts, a café and bar, and an outstanding specialist library with an extensive collection of recordings, manuscripts, sheet music, and images relating to British folk song, dances, and local cultures in general.
