Little Ship Club – is a well-established Scottish country dance group who meet at St Columba’s Pont Street on Thursday evenings every three weeks from September to May. We dance a wide variety of dances as well as the more familiar ones. We very often have a musician playing for us, and as a friendly social group we are always willing to welcome new members. It may be helpful to know the basic steps, but most dances are walked through. We break halfway through the evening for a picnic supper that participants bring themselves. Contact Stuart Thom on 0207 924 2081 or email.
London Reels – London Reels meets once per month (September – June) in the lower hall of St Columba’s Church in Pont Street, SW1. This is a fantastic venue which can accommodate over 200 dancers on its large wooden dance floor.
We welcome novice and experienced reelers from around the world of all ages and backgrounds to share in this most beloved of Scottish pastimes.
At London Reels we teach and practise a limited number of dances. Beginners are especially welcome, and we pride ourselves on our ability to convert sceptical first-timers into reeling devotees!
On Saturday 12th January 2019 dancers and their families enjoyed a traditional Burns Night ceilidh and a supper provided by Margaret Shaw and her catering team. Piper Ryan Ellsworth piped in the haggis which was addressed by Ian Rutherford (See photos).
