Organising a Barn Dance

  • Appoint a treasurer.
  • Think about how many people will come.
  • Pick a date.
  • Find a venue.
  • Book the Band and a Caller.
  • Arrange advertising - posters, newsletters, shop windows, libraries, radio, word-of-mouth.
  • Get tickets and posters printed.
  • Advertise.
  • Arrange food and drink, and some helpers.
  • Advertise some more.
  • Nominate door tenders.
  • Double check on all offers of help.
  • Provide a cash float for door ticket sales.
  • Ensure the venue will be open in good time.
  • Come along and enjoy the dance!

We can normally arrange a Caller for you. We provide our own amplification system, but we need to know in advance if there is an additional requirement (e.g. more power may be needed out-of-doors).
