Dancing in the Gardens to Live Music

Dancers and Castle

The Gardens Scottish Country Dancers is a not-for-profit group dedicated to arranging summer evenings of Scottish Country Dancing to live music in the open air in Princes Street Gardens, Edinburgh - an activity which has gone on for over half a century. We also organise some indoor dances allowing dancers to indulge their enthusiasm when many of the clubs have reduced activity for the summer.

Our programme for 2017 is now over, but your committee is already working on planning for 2018. Details will appear here as they become available. Watch this space!

In recent years we have typically held two dances per week in June and July, and one one per week in August, with dances in the open air on the Mondays in June and July, the remainder being indoors. That pattern is likely to apply in 2018 also, but our plans may well be affected by proposed redevelopment of the Princes Street Garden site.
