History

The Leeds Branch of the RSCDS was formed on 21st June 1962 by 4 members of the Leeds Scottish Country Dance Club - Miss Mair Pinnell, Miss Shirley Shields, Dr. William Cunningham and Hammond Jack. Since our formation we have run dances with bands, initially only twice a year but now every month.

We have details on the branch constitutions and current committee members. There is also a history of the Leeds Club, written in 1971.
