Scottish Country Dance Diary

Please try to apply for ticketed events by two weeks before as it helps with planning and catering. If bringing finger food please note if it is gluten free for instance. Cancel straight away if unable to come – the full cost is due if a ticket is not cancelled.

Affiliated Clubs are invited to inform us of their plannned dates as soon as possible to help avoid clashes. Please see our Date Planner

There are other nearby event diaries, in particular The South East Dance Diary from RSCDS London Branch covers the general area.
