Everything you need to know to make your Barn Dance go with a swing

Areas We Cover

Based between Aylesbury in Bucks, and Thame in Oxfordshire, we normally travel up to a distance of about 35 miles. However, if you are a little further afield we still may be able to help you.


Your barn dance can be located anywhere - village hall, community centre, marquee, back garden, or even a car park - as long as the dancing area is level and free from obstructions. We can advise if you're not sure about space - just contact us to discuss how many guests you have and we will give you an estimate of how big the venue needs to be.

Band Setup

We will need at least one and a half hours to set up the PA beforehand, and a 13amp power supply. We don't need a stage, but require at least 6 square metres for the band's position. The band also needs to be within sight of the Caller and dancers.

Duration of Barn Dance

Typically an evening dance is from 7.30pm to 9pm, with a 45 minute break for refreshments, and further dancing from 9.45pm to 11pm approximately. We are very flexible on timings to suit your particular need.

Player Requirements

When you break for refreshments, it is usual for the band and caller to be fed first so they can resume playing as soon as possible after the break. They do appreciate being fed and watered!


We are fully covered for public liability insurance and electrical testing requirements.


Cost depends on length of playing time, location of the event, and travelling distance. In the first instance it is best to contact us so we can check the date is available and discuss your needs further. We may also be able to help you with other aspects of your event, such as marquee or dance floor hire.
