The Keep Fit Association National Events

The Keep Fit Association national events are major occasions in our year and we all really look forward to them. There are also many more events that are run by our regions and branches. Take a look at the Calendar to see what is going on throughout the Keep Fit Association community.

The Keep Fit Association National Festival is held every two years and alternates with the Keep Fit Association National Championship event

This is a dance show spectacular where teams of Keep Fit Association members from all of our nine regions present an inspired showcase of exercise, movement and dance. The event was held at The Royal Albert Hall in London for many years, then Milton Keynes Theatre in 2012 and The Symphony Hall in Birmingham 2014, 2016, 2018 and 2022.

Regions are invited to produce two items – one movement and one using apparatus. This event is always a highlight for the KFA, it brings our regions together and showcases everything brilliant about our Association.

The National Festival 2024 – Inspired to Dance, Telling stories through Laban will take place at The Albert Hall, Nottingham on Saturday 8th June 2024.

National Volunteer of the Year Awards

We are proud of our history as an association. We would not be what we are without the passion and loyalty of our many volunteer members who give their time, enthusiasm and energy to run our social and charity fund raising events. Our nine regions and the branches/areas within them are all run by volunteers as well. We recognise this by running national Keep Fit Association volunteer of the year awards each year and present the awards at the national annual general meeting.
