We are the Newcastle & District Branch of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society,
promoting the traditions of Scottish Country Dancing in the North-East of England.
We cover the area from Morpeth in the north to Durham in the south and from Hexham
to the east coast.
We offer :
DANCES -every month except August you can dance to well-known Scottish Dance bands,
usually on a Saturday night. All these dances are informal except the Highland Ball
CLASSES -if you’ve never tried Scottish Country Dancing or haven’t danced for a
while, there are classes for all ages and different abilities throughout the region.
DISPLAYS -our display team is happy to brighten up your activities, from Burn’s
Night suppers to fundraising events. We can help to run a ceilidh with general dancing
and displays or we can provide a show for more formal occasions.
For further information contact our Display Convenor Peter Avery on 07900 215036
or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note the Festival due to be held in 2021 has been postponed until 12th February

Many people have asked about how they can contribute to the Branch, especially to
support the Zoom classes we run. So we now have a PayPal account which you can use
to make donations. So, if you do attend any of our classes or if you would just like
to support the Branch with its work to promote and develop Scottish Dancing, please
do consider making a donation
