The Caledonian Society will be closed until the end of April due to the coronavirus
Our society, created in 1907 is comprised of expatriate Scots and families, together with those of Scottish descent keen to retain their culture and heritage, and to those who just enjoy Scottish Country Dancing.
Society evenings are held in the Scottish Hall on Thursdays at 7-45pm until 10pm from September to the end of May. The entrance fee for Members £3.00, Non Members £3.50 this includes light refreshment. The evening usually has speakers / entertainment for approximately one hour followed by tea, then dancing.
Each Monday we have Scottish Country Dancing which caters for all standards. This takes place from 7.30 until 9.30pm. The entrance fee is £3.50 and includes light refreshment.
The society also has its own Scottish Country Dance Team, and Heritage Group. Our Scottish Country Dance Team perform at various functions throughout the year and are available upon request throughout Dorset and beyond, and The Caledonian Singers regularly entertain at charitable functions.
On the THIRD Wednesday of each month, our Heritage Group meet for interesting talks and discussions concerning Scottish History, Culture and topical debate.
All the above meetings are open to all comers. Full membership of the society is available to those born in Scotland, those of Scottish descent and to those married to a Scot.
