Helensburgh & District 40th Branch Weekend

6th - 8th April 2018

The Helensburgh & District RSCDS

40th Weekend

IS HERE! 

This year is the Ruby Anniversary of our Annual Weekend, and we are delighted to say it is a sell-out event!  We look forward to welcoming our friends who will join us in our celebration of 40 years of Weekends filled with fun, friendship -  and Scottish Country Dancing - here in Helensburgh.

We're starting off the Friday night a little earlier than usual at 7pm with a small Welcoming Ceremony including cutting the Anniversary cake, a few short speeches, and a celebratory Toast before Frank Thomson plays for us at this year's Ball.

On Saturday morning Janet Johnston will be teaching the class accompanied by Màrtainn Skene, and on the Saturday night Marian Anderson will play for our Dance. We finish the weekend with a relaxed talk (and quite possibly a little more dancing, so bring your shoes!) by Janet Johnston over coffee on the Sunday morning - the venue for this has changed and will now be held at the Hermitage Academy.

We're also delighted to say that due to a change in Council Policy, as well as a complimentary glass of 'fizz' for the Toast, this year you can also enjoy a glass of wine with your Buffet Supper at the Ball. Please bring your own wine if you would like to do so.
