Reading Cloggies Festival Videos  A unique record of clog & step dancing

Professionally filmed videos of the Reading Cloggies Festival performances

Featuring many well known clog and step dancers and dance groups


Each Video includes the Performers Show which is a fantastic historical record of the talents of many exceptional clog and step dancers.

The Workshop Show was filmed at the end of the day when the workshop participants showed what they had learned.  These dances are usually shown at slower than normal performance speed and were intended as a reminder to allow workshop members and other dancers to learn the dances from the film.  All the videos except 1996 and 2002 also include a lecture.

We no longer hold stock of the videos, we have given master copies to Garland Films who are converting them to DVD after which they will be available for sale.    Click for Garland Films website
