The White Rose Festival of Scottish Country Dancing

Dear Dancing Friends

The organising committee of the White Rose Festival of Scottish Country Dancing would like to invite you and your team of dancers to take part in this year's Festival. 2014 is the Diamond Anniversary of the Festival and our afternoon programme reflects popular dances of the last few decades.

Date: Saturday, 12th July 2014

Venue: The Gateways School , Harewood, Leeds , LS17 9LE
                   (     -     (map)

The school has excellent facilities. It is in a rural setting opposite the Harewood estate approximately 3 miles north of the Leeds city boundary on the Harrogate road. It is easily accessible from all directions using the motorway network.

Saturday Afternoon, 12th July, 1.45 - 5.00 (Assemble at 13.30, 15 minutes earlier than in previous year)

There will be massed open air dancing for adult and junior teams, opportunities for demonstrations of pre-selected dances and ladies’ and men’s Highland displays. Dancing will be to Luke Brady and his Scottish Dance Band with piping from Alan Harrison. Ian Slater will also play if the event is held indoors because of wet weather.

Please note that arrangements can be made this year for individual dancers or small groups.

Saturday Evening, 12th July, 19.00 - 22.30

There will be a social dance to Luke Brady and his band in the sports hall at Gateways School. Admission will be by ticket only, since the numbers that can be accommodated are limited.

Tickets will cost £13, £5 for those in full time education and £4 for juniors under 11.

The committee hopes very much that you will be able to join us for our Anniversary Festival and we look forward to seeing you dancing with us.

Yours sincerely,


Jane Walford

Chairman, White Rose Festival Committee
