For dancers, there is a variety of lively dances and workshops in the (air-conditioned) town hall throughout the weekend.
In past years dancing has kicked off with an Irish ceilidh on the Friday night. In different years this has been led by Marie Brouder and Paul Smith with music from the Adelaide Comhaltas musicians.
On Saturday during the day, dance workshops are offered to prepare dancers for the Saturday night dance.
In 2016 the VFMC led a great Saturday evening family dance which offered a variety of different dances.
On the Sunday evening, the Gathering usually concludes with a scratch band and a great fun traditional dance.
Check the program when you arrive in Frances for full workshop details and times.
