Welcome to the
St Andrew’s Society of the Netherlands
Welcome back to our updated (15th & 24th September 2021) website :
We are a group of people who like Scotland, especially Scottish Country Dancing. We are based in and around Den Haag. We are now taking bookings for our StA Charity Ball on Saturday 27 November 2021 being held at the Leonardo Royal Hotel.
Our other big news is that we have changed our location. The British School at Diamanthorst has been our “home” for nearly 10 years, but is not accepting evening bookings for the current scholastic year. We have been fortunate to be accepted by the Church of Our Saviour as tenants in their Atrium.
The Church of Our Saviour is near the centre of Den Haag on the corner of Bezuidenhoutseweg and Koningin Marialaan; its Atrium that our club will use is behind the church on the corner of Koningin Marialaan and Helenastraat.
We plan to have dancing classes most Friday nights from September to March and probably a few in May. We are also planning to have 5 annual events (ceilidhs and other dances) during the year – in September (it was intentionally quiet, but successful), November, January, April and June.
It has been a full year and a half since we initially cancelled our regular dancing due to the CORONA VIRUS. That we have been able to re-start our dancing will been thanks to the success and uptake of the various vaccines on offer.
