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. 

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. See the application form.

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.

Past Residentials

The 2018 residential was on the weekend of Friday 9th to Sunday 11th March 2018. The teacher was Nicola Scott, and music was provided by Chris and Julie Dewhurst Band. You can download the cribs for the Friday Night Dance and the Saturday Night Ceilidh and the list of dances from the classes.

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.
