Residential Weekend

We hold a residential weekend each year in March. For the last few years this has been at the Langstone Cliff Hotel at Dawlish Warren on the South Devon Coast. 

This year's residential will be on the weekend of Friday 9th to Sunday 11th March 2018. The teacher will be Nicola Scott, and music will be provide by the Chris Dewhurst Band. You can download the application form with more details. You can also download the cribs for the Friday Night Dance and the Saturday Night Ceilidh.

The weekend usually starts off with dinner and a dance on Friday night. There are classes on Saturday and Sunday mornings, and a Ceilidh on Saturday night. Most of the dancers are members of Bristol RSCDS, but other dancers are welcome. Dancers from South West England and South Wales have joined us in the last few years. The cost includes a hotel room and all meals from Friday dinner to Sunday lunch. There is a supplement for single rooms.

The 2019 weekend will be at Langstone Cliff, Dawlish Warren, from Friday 8th March to Sunday 10th March, with Pat Houghton as class teacher and Ian Robertson playing the music.

The 2018 residential was at Dawlish on 9th to 11th March. The classes were taken by Nicola Scott, who taught us the dances in the dance list, which has links to the full dance descriptions. The band was Chris and Julie Dewhurst.

The 2017 residential at Dawlish was on 10th to 12th of March. The dances we were taught by Janet Johnston in the classes are listed here, and the crib is here.
