White Heather Club Ceilidh dancing comes to Bonnie & Wild!
Polish up those brogues, dust off the sporran and gie yon bonnie dress a press because Scottish Highland dancing is coming to our Scottish Marketplace!
Kicking off amid the excitement of the Edinburgh Festival, we’re going to be running our “White Heather Club” ceilidh nights every month that’ll have you whirling and twirling to dances such as the Dashing White Sergeant, Gay Gordons, and the much-loved Strip the Willow.
The renowned musician Charlie Kirkpatrick and his band will perform at the launch night on Thursday, August 25th, with Charlie taking dancers through the moves of traditional dances, from the Highland Schottische to the Military Two-Step and other ceilidh favourites.
Charlie, a regular presence on the BBC show Take the Floor, said: “We’re all excited and looking forward to bringing a bit of Scottish country dancing and ceilidh culture to Bonnie & Wild. These dances are for anyone and everyone. Even if you don’t know the dances we’ll call the steps and make sure everyone enjoys themselves and has a good night!”
Inspired by the White Heather Club, the iconic BBC TV show of the 1960s, our Scottish country dances will be free to everyone and anyone who pops up to Bonnie & Wild, on Level 4 of the St James Quarter, Edinburgh.
