Folkestone, Dover, Deal Rock and Roll Club
The Club was founded in 1992 and we dance at St Margaret’s Hall on pretty much every Wednesday evening throughout the year.
Anyone can come. Our youngest dancers are in their teens and, well, we just don’t ask how old some are. Let’s just say they’re “over 21”
Singles are just as welcome as couples and you’ll always find a partner. It’s a great way to make new friends and enjoy real Rock & Roll music. If you’ve never danced before, come to the beginner’s lesson on Wednesday’s at 7.30 with Andy our resident DJ
If Live Music is your thing, send us your email and we’ll let you know when we have a Band, or look out for our flyers in the Hall Foyer and at other gigs.
Times & prices:
Wednesday 7.30pm – 8ish lesson then dancing till 11pm with our fab DJ’s £5
Saturday band nights 7.30 – midnight £10

St Margaret’s and District Gardeners’ Association
St Margaret’s and District Gardeners’ Association (SMADGA), founded in 1912, is a friendly, sociable village organisation open to everyone, whether you’re an active gardener or not. We organise traditional competitive horticultural shows twice a year (spring and summer), with classes for arts and crafts and home produce, as well as flowers, plants, fruit and vegetables. We have a thriving Green Buddies section and particularly encourage entries from children and young adults. We also arrange a series of talks in the autumn and winter, an annual summer garden visit and a Christmas dinner.
Annual membership is £5 per person (which includes children and grandchildren of members, up to the age of 16). Horticultural Shows are in the main hall on Saturdays twice a year (7 April 2018; 1 September 2018; 6 April 2019): members’ entries are delivered 8.30–10am; shows open to the public 2–4pm. Five or six monthly talks on Friday afternoons at 2pm in the Channel Room run from October to March.
