The Reading Step and Traditional Dance Group held a Day of Clog and Music Workshops in 1979.  In 1980 this was renamed as the Clog and Step Dance Festivala and the event was held annually until 2002.

The first Day, in 1979,  was held at the Youth Centre, Twyford, Bershire. From 1980 through to 1990 the venue was the Loddon Hall, also at Twyford.  From 1991 to 2000 Altwood School, Maidenhead was used.  The 2001 event was at Reading Girls School and the final occasion was at Meadway Campus, Tilehurst, Reading.

The format was generally similar for each event and centered on a number of workshops taken by members of the RSTDG and others.  In 1981 a number of guest performance were added and the following year tutors also performed.  This format continued to the end in 2002.

The amount of information on each event varies considerably, ranging from a copy of the programme through to a large volume of background papers and video recording s of the day.  These may be accessed by clicking the links below.
