In 2021, the RSCDS produced a book to commemorate the 250th anniversary of Sir Walter Scott's birth. A leaflet of six dances was produced in 1820 to accompany Scott's book, The Heart of Mid-Lothian. The RSCDS publication gives accounts of the characters as well as a brief history of the era together with the original leaflet dances, music and a modern interpretation suitable for dancing now. Some dances from the publication are included in the programme.
Gather in Hobart's elegant historic Town Hall at 7pm to meet friends and enjoy warming mulled cider. The Grand March begins at 7.30pm, then we dance the night away. Enjoy a sumptuous supper during the evening.
Tickets: Adult $55.00, 16 years & under $25.00, Spectators $30.00
