The Diary
The Dance Diary lists forthcoming Scottish Country Dance events in the area bounded by Birmingham and Coventry to the north; Bristol and Bath to the south; Oxford and Abingdon to the east; Hereford and Ross to the west. 
  I am always pleased to add other events to the Diary provided that they are within the area, and are strictly Scottish country dance events, (not dinner dances, St. Andrews dinners, Burns suppers etc). Please send details to me at 
This is an unofficial service and so I cannot impose any deadline, nor can I guarantee the accuracy of the contents.  Please check with the organisers of any event.

The Main Event 
Cheltenham Scottish Society’s Annual Dance was held on Saturday 28th February 2015, opening with the
pipers from St. Andrews Pipe Band and dancing to the music of Iain MacPhail and His Scottish Country
Dance Band who were as magnificent as ever.  Once again it was a sell-out with 12 sets; a fantastic atmosphere
with enjoyment all round, (and no walk-throughs).
This event will be held next on Saturday 27th February 2016.
Nil satis nisi optimum

End of Season
Cheltenham Scottish Society's End-of-Season Dance to be held on Saturday 30th May 2015.

List of Popular Dances 
New List of Popular dances for 2013 - 2014. 
This should be of use to programme compilers as it follows that
the more familiar the programme of dances is, the more tickets are sold.
With this in mind I have listed dances in order of last season’s popularity. 


Programme Guidelines
Valuable advice from the Leeds Scottish Country Dance Club on
compiling a programme for a ball or other major event.
