Welcome to our
We are the Surbiton and District Caledonian Society.
Would you like to come and join us for some Scottish Country Dancing?
We meet every Thursday from early September until the middle of June
(except on 24th January, 2013 - the evening before our Burns' Supper -
see the calendar page).
Our Thursday evenings are from 8:00 to 10:30 pm in St Marks Church Hall,
Church Hill Road,
Surbiton KT6 4UE. There is plenty of parking on the road. (map).
This is a new hall with a sprung floor.
We dance Jigs, Reels, Strathspeys and have Fun! Our motto -
in Latin and Gaelic - means "Joy through Dancing" and that pretty well
sums up what we get from our Thursday nights.
Apart from the sheer enjoyment, Scottish Country Dancing also stimulates the little grey cells and keeps you fit!
Our club is very friendly and informal - and newcomers are made
You don't need a kilt, a partner or experience and you do not have to be Scottish
(though we suggest you bring
a pair of soft shoes).
If you want to contact us or find out more about what we do,
here or on the About Us link in the
Navigation Bar on the left.
Our Family Dances take place on occasional Saturday
afternoons at St Marks Church Hall. They include simpler
dances suitable for children (and even grannies and grampas).
Throughout the season we have various special
evenings when instead of tea and biscuits at the
interval we have what it is known as a Canadian supper
(or "Bring a plate to share").
The first one was our Welcome Evening on 4
October 2012 and then we have special events for St
Andrews night on 29th November and to celebrate Christmas and
New Year in December. See the calendar page for events
in 2012 and 2013.
