From 5 October 2021, we are taking the next step in the process of returning to normal.
There will be no need to pre-book to attend the evening. Just turn up and pay your £5 on the door, as we have done in the past, and help yourself to soft drinks and wine.
However, we still have to be cautious. We expect that anyone who attends will have received both doses of vaccine, and will be self-administering Lateral Flow Tests.
e full details of our Covid precautions and what everyone should do before attending are detailed in the Covid FAQ which you can find here.
Wimbledon Reels is a group of friendly dancing enthusiasts who meet on Tuesday each week (Thursday during the summer) in Wimbledon in south-west London to dance Scottish country dances - reels, jigs and strathspeys. We are committed to the idea that Scottish country dancing should be fun, and we have an experienced team of MCs who walk through and call all our dances so that everyone can join in.
We limit ourselves to a small range of dances, which most of our regulars know well and new members can learn very quickly. We do about 10 dances in an evening, each one followed by a short interval to relax, socialise and enjoy a glass of wine or a soft drink. At the end of the evening, a happy (if perspiring) crowd makes its way to the pub to continue socialising!
We meet every Tuesday (or Thursday during the summer) from 19:30 to 22:00 at Trinity Church Hall, Mansel Road, Wimbledon, London SW19 4AA.

We welcome newcomers, whatever their level of experience. If you've never done Scottish country dancing before click here

We meet in Trinity Church, Mansel Road, SW19 4AA, a really smart newly refurbished building with a lovely sprung floor that is ideal for dancing. It is close to both Wimbledon Station and Tramlink stops.
