Coronavirus

It is with great regret that all RSCDS BHS Border Branch Classes and Events have been cancelled until further notice.

This wasn’t an easy decision for the Branch Committee to make but having considered the number of elderly folk involved, the close proximity and handing involved in Scottish Dancing, together with the enclosed indoor environment, we feel that we are doing the right thing. Other classes and events are being cancelled locally and all over the world.

BUT, please note that individual clubs are making their own decisions so please check with any you normally attend to see if they are still running normally.

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.
