Anticipating the 2019 Ball

This year’s ball is being organized by the Abingdon SCDC on Saturday 7th December.

Full details are available on the AbingdonSCDC web site.

Wootton & Dry Sandford Community Centre
Lamborough Hill, Wootton OX13 6DA
Tickets £5.00, pay on the door

Dances will be chosen from the Ball programme (below).

For this anticipation afternoon we will walk through and then dance those not ‘struck through’ below. The choice may change on the day! We can’t guarantee what order they will be danced in either!
