Some of our core activities

Dance classes take place on Wednesday evenings, 8.15 pm at St Alban's Church Hall, Norwood Drive, North Harrow. 
Experienced dancers and beginners are equally welcome.


Burns Night is celebrated on a Saturday close to 25th January.  In 2017 we were pleased to welcome Jane Brown, former president of the Robert Burns World Federation, as our guest orator.  In previous years our orators have been Clark McGinn, James Fields, James Fairbairn, Bill Henry, and in 2011 Janet McNulty (great-great-great-great-granddaughter of Burns) proposed the principal toast to the immortal memory of Robert Burns.  


St Andrew's-tide is celebrated with a Ceilidh with entertainment provided by a number of our members plus a chance for all to join in the dancing and singing.


Other activities include social evenings, rambles, book club, gardening group and outings to places of interest

Please explore the website for further information on all the above or email mail@harrowscottish.org.uk for more information.

We look forward to welcoming you to some of our activities.

CORONAVIRUS/COVID19 advice from RSCDS website, early March www.rscds.org/blog/coronavirus:
  Good practice for staying healthy
  It may seem obvious, but a few precautions can go a long way to stop germs from spreading:
    Wash your hands prior to and directly after attending a dance class
    Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
    Put used tissues in the bin straight away
    Wash your hands with soap and water often use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
    Try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell and please do not attend a dance, a class or a committee meeting if you are feeling unwell.
