Dear Dancing Friends

What a wonderful festival we had in 2023, even though we had to dance inside due to rain. Susan MacFadyen and her Band were a delight, it was lovely having a piper again and we were delighted to have four junior teams taking part as well as some newer dancers. 

The organising committee of the White Rose Festival would like to thank you all for your support and hope to see you and your team of fellow dancers at next year’s Festival dancing to Ewan Galloway and his Band.

If you enjoyed the Festival this year, please make a note of next year’s date and encourage your family and friends to come along. Teams can dance as many dances as they like and “mix and match” between the adult and junior programmes.  If you have any suggestions concerning the festival, please email us.
