Cockermouth SCDC 60th Anniversary Ball - Saturday 9th May 2020 - Gatra Farm, Asby, Lamplugh, Workington, CA14 4SA
In 2020, the Cockermouth Scottish Country Dance Club celebrates its 60th Anniversary!
The club began in February 1960 with a few friends meeting in the old Derwent School and now has 42 members enjoying weekly classes and three annual dances.
We warmly invite friends old and new to join us for our Anniversary Ball on Saturday 9th May 2020 and help us celebrate 60 years of Scottish Country Dancing. We have a very special venue for our special occasion – a converted barn, which incorporates the former Cumbria Ballroom sprung floor, situated in an idyllic rural setting on a working farm just south of Cockermouth. We shall be dancing to the music of George Meikle and the Lothian Band and the evening includes a fully catered supper.
Cockermouth is a historic ‘Gem’ town, close to the English Lake District (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) and birthplace of William and Dorothy Wordsworth. For those wishing to stay over, it offers a wide variety of accommodation options and is an ideal location from which to explore the area.
We hope we shall be able to welcome you to our special celebration – further details available on our website: www.derwentscdc.com
