What about Bad Weather?
Occasionally the weather in Edinburgh is not suitable for open-air
dancing (but less often than you might think). On those occasions the
dancing may be cancelled. As some of the bands and the demonstration
teams come from a distance away, the decision whether to proceed or
not is taken soon after 3pm on the day of the event. This website will
be updated with the status as soon as it is known. If it proves
difficult for us to update the webpage with this information,
please telephone a member of the committee.
