The benefits of RSCDS membership include reduced rates at classes, dances, and events. Members are also entitled to a sizeable discount on items bought from the RSCDS shop. It also includes a subscription to the Society’s publication ‘The Scottish Country Dancer’ which is issued biannually. Furthermore, membership of the London branch includes a subscription to our quarterly magazine, ‘The Reel’. This can be either received as a paper magazine in the post, or electronically as an ‘eReel’ email attachment.
