The Aldershot and Farnborough Dance Festival is held every year in the spring as part of the Aldershot and Farnborough Festival of Music and Art, and has been in existence since 1941. It is affiliated to the British and International Federation of Festivals, and is supported by Rushmoor Leisure.
For over twenty years the Festival has been held at what is now the Samuel Cody Specialist Sports College in Cove Until recently this was known as the Oak Farm Centre, and prior to that Oak Farm School. However, regular visitors to our Festival will note that the venue is identical to that of previous years.
The Dance Festival is a qualifying event for the All-England Dance Festival, which is held on alternate years.
Farnborough is an All-England qualifying event in 2018.
Details of the syllabus, how to enter, fees, and how to find Samuel Cody College are available on this website.
