Fantasia Festival is the longest-running Bellydance festival in the UK and is hosted by Bellydance Now. We aim to provide an opportunity for dancers to get together, try a workshop in different styles or techniques, catch up with Bellydance buddies and make new ones, take part in lectures, shop and of course, enjoy a wide range of performances in different styles from dancers worldwide.

We have 4 time slots for workshops – some are in the main hall which can accommodate a lot of people comfortably – and then we have 2 smaller rooms which will hold 20 dancers. Randa of course will be in the main hall. After that whichever workshop has over 20 participants booking will take place in the main hall. Click here to see the timetable and read the descriptions of the workshops to help you choose which to go to.
Our open stage will be before the main Gala show. An opportunity for participants to showcase themselves and their troupes. If you are ONLY coming to the Open stage then you need a ticket. If you are coming to the Gala show, your Gala show ticket includes access to the open stage. If you have paid for workshops, you can also watch the open stage without a ticket. If you are only coming to watch the open stage, get your ticket here.
Our Gala show will host the final of our BellyDance Now International Challenge. These dancers signed up for a year of challenges to develop their dance. We go slightly ‘Strictly’ and show videos of their journey as well as their final competition performance.
And, of course our amazing teachers will perform including the inspirational Randa Kamel.
