National Limerick Day is set on 12th May 2020 to mark the birthday of Edward Lear, the English writer known for his works of nonsensical prose and poetry. Contribution by Branch Member, Margaret Tough, to mark the day.

What better than to dance a strathspey
But if a jig or a reel
Describes how you feel
Then just dance to acknowledge the Day.
14 March 2020Glasgow Music Festival 2020
One of our last RSCDS Glasgow Branch activities until further notice .......
A great day had by all teams taking part in the dancing 💃 , but for those of us watching a delight to see both adults and children dancing with such enthusiasm. Thanks to Susan Ewington and her team for the organisation and help on the day.
All coupled with the beautiful music 🎶 of Màrtainn Skene. Well done to the Glasgow winners!
Finally to top it all off - an impromptu dance at the end between Glasgow and New Scotland dancers. What fun!
25 January 2020At the Saturday dance
Durng this very relaxing dance we enjoyed some entertainment. Three young dancers demonstrated their dancing skills - excellent. Later two other solo presentations, of revelant Burns flavour, were much appreciated.
This one was caught on camera. A 'wee' demonstration of how to dance Postie's Jig when you only have seven dancers. Obvious - you enlist the help of the 'Broom of Bon Accord' in his best outfit. The passing of the Broom from dancer to dancer was neatly done and added to the overall 'fun' performance. Our thanks to all the 'entertainers'.

As we start the 'twenties', Dancers put on their glad rags and headed to the Glasgow Branch Midwinter Ball. To the excellent music of Ian Muir Sound we danced the varied programme with pleasure. A total of eight past, and present, Chairmen assembled for a photo. Another succesful Branch event.
