ASCDS Festival 2018

On Saturday 12th May, after a pub lunch, fourteen dancers represented the Branch in the massed dances at the Association of Scottish Country Dance Societies’ 58th Annual Festival held at the Retford Oaks Academy hosted by the Chesterfield group.  Altogether there were 200+ dancers from the East Midlands and South Yorkshire all enjoying dancing to the music of Chris Dewhurst and his Band.  It was lovely to meet up with friends from other groups that we meet each year, all great fun.

Some of the groups performed demonstration dances during the afternoon, and Nottingham’s team danced a 3 couple Strathspey Twenty-three Two Ninety which was very well received.  Check out the video!

A fish and chip supper was on offer before a hundred or so dancers stayed on for yet more dancing at an evening social dance to Chris’s music hosted by Retford RSCDS.  Altogether it was a most enjoyable day…here’s to next year!
