Welcome to the Somerset Branch of the RSCDS

The Somerset Branch is a small group who are very enthusiastic about Scottish Country Dancing, and always welcome new members to come along and join us.    Our classes are all taught by Qualified RSCDS Teachers and we offer classes for all abilities from beginners to advanced.     We hold weekly branch classes in term time at Long Sutton Village Hall and School, and there are also classes at Ashill and Somerton which are also taught by our teachers.     Please contact us for further information by emailing our Secretary Liz Beckinsale at



Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions our classes and events have been suspended until further notice.   We will advise members and update our website when we are able to recommence.    In the meantime please stay safe, and we look forward to dancing again before too long.


Please be advised that the Somerset Branch (Virtual) AGM has been scheduled for 7th May at 7pm.    This will be done online and  all members have been notified by either email or by post.  

The current committee have agreed to continue as present for the forthcoming year to the 31st December 2020 during these difficult times, however new committee members are always welcome and we ask that any member who wishes to be nominated for a position to contact The Secretary via email:  ealbeckinsale@btinternet.com.


It has been recommended by HQ that the Branch does not ask for membership renewals (due on 1st July) until such time as classes recommence.   The committee and membership secretary will therefore update members when able to do so.
