RSCDS London’s Christmas dance took place on Saturday 11 December to the wonderful music of Marian Anderson and her Scottish Country Dance Band. Given the recent Covid related news and restrictions (to say nothing of a semi closed M40 and police activity surrounding a West London shooting) we were delighted to welcome six full sets of very happy dancers to enjoy the amazing music as well as the delicious food provided by Margaret Shaw and the catering team.  Simon Wales and Lindsey Jane Rousseau were our MCs for the evening, ably guiding us through a lively programme postponed from Christmas 2020. We look forward to our next event  – the annual Burns’ Ceilidh and supper on 15 January 2022
