The Harwell (70th Anniversary) and Abingdon Ball
This year our Ball (held alternately with Abingdon SCDC) is celebrating our 70th Anniversary and will be held on Saturday 1 December 2018.
We’ll be starting with a welcome drink at 7pm, dancing will commence at 7.30 and continue until 11.30.
Once again, we will be dancing to Craigellachie in the Old Mill Hall, Grove, with the interval meal catered by the Grove WI.
Tickets are £20 each from the secretary below (£15 for non-dancers).
We have an A4 flyer available for download.
The programme (below) has been set up as a dance list on the Strathspey Server
giving you access to cribs, diagrams and even videos of all the dances on our programme.
Our tickets include, as ever, a crib based on MiniCrib. For those of you who like diagrams, we have prepared a convenient file for printing (one side per half). A few copies of this will be available on the night.

There are three dances there that may be new to you:
- Blue Butterfly – we are seeking original instructions for this but the MiniCrib words describe things fully.
- Harlequin – written by one of our members, Pat Stanaway, the orginal instructions are on our Club Dances page.
- The Platinum Anniversary – comes from the West Lothian Branch 70th Anniversary book. Specifically, here is a link to The Platinum Strathspey.
