Scottish Ceilidh Club Starting 15th April



The Bedford Scottish Dance Group is organising a Scottish Ceilidh Club to give an opportunity for those who haven’t experienced Scottish dancing to learn some of the more popular dances. The first meeting of the Club will be on Friday 15th April and we plan to have eight weekly meetings in the first instance, the last meeting being on the 3rd June. We will then meet again in the Autumn if there is sufficient interest. Each evening’s dancing will begin at 7.45 pm and finish at 9.45 pm. The cost for each evening will be £3. We have booked the Reading Room, 1, Barkers Lane, Bedford MK41 9SH for the eight week period. This is at the Goldington Road end of Barker’s Lane on the west side of the road. There is limited off-road parking but kerb-side parking in Barker’s Lane and King Edward Road is more than adequate.

You do not need a partner. You may find soft shoes [trainers/plimsolls] most comfortable. John Mullett will be the instructor for each evening’s dancing. He does Scottish Country Dancing and Highland Dancing. You may have met him at our New Year Ceilidhs. The plan he has for the group is to take 7 weeks to prepare for a party. The party will be the final session and you will be free to invite your friends to join us. However, before then, he plans to teach you the dances so that you can dance with confidence and to the best of your ability at the party.

I need a rough idea of how many people are likely to attend our first meeting so please let me know if you would like to come along.
