Annual Ball – 13th May 2017

Join us for our Annual Ball in the historic splendour of Greyfriars Kirk on Saturday 13th May 2017.

This year our programme includes many of our favourite dances and we hope that everyone will have another fantastic evening in the company of friends, old and new.

We are delighted to be welcoming Gary Donaldson and his Scottish dance band to play for us and are sure they will keep us on our toes the whole evening through with some great tunes.

There is a pre-event Workshop on Sunday 7th May at Murrayfield Church Hall, Ormidale Terrace, EH12 6EQ from 2.30 – 4.30pm. This is a great opportunity to practise the dances, and meet other dancers ahead of the event, in a relaxed and informal setting.
