Open Air Dancing 18 August 2018

Crowds gathered to watch and join in the first of this year’s open air dancing sessions in Kensington Gardens. Scottish dancers, tourists visiting London on holiday and others visiting the park who were drawn to the lawn in front of the bandstand by the music provided by the band Kafoozalum, enjoyed two hours of dancing easy Scottish and ceilidh dances.

Under the guidance of MC James Fairbairn they had fun dancing a selection of jigs and reels. The Branch demonstration team also gave a display.

View a video of the demonstration team’s display on our Branch YouTube page.
