British Flair 2022
One of the nice traditions of the SCDH year is the performance at the British Flair in late summer at the Hamburg Polo Club in Klein Flottbek.
This year we were allowed two time slots on the big stage.
Even on Sunday morning at 11 o'clock, a surprisingly large number of spectators had already gathered.
Besides the commitment to a good cause, the main aim is to show our audience the fun of dancing together and to draw attention to our group.

British Flair 2021
The annual British Flair expo and country fair at the Polo Club in Klein Flottbek is one of the highlights of the year for the Scottish Country Dancers of Hamburg (SCDH).
Like in the previous year the 2021 event was allowed to take place under special health precautions.
Due to travel restrictions between the UK and Germany most exhibitors were actually from Germany, trying to summon British lifestyle and hold up the British Flair spirit.

Weekend Course 2020
This years Hamburg Weekend Course should have been held from Friday, May 22nd to Sunday, May 24th 2020. We had booked a venue including accommodation and full board. Rachel Shankland and Mervyn Short would have been our teachers and Judith and Ian Muir were ready to provide the music for classes and evening events.
The Weekend Course 2020 has been cancelled in light of the current COVID-19 virus situation.
We hope to find a new date and may be our teachers and musicians will be able to come over then. Let's keep our fingers crossed.
Northern German Social
The plan is to have 4 afternoons during the year to meet and dance. No step practice - just dancing and having fun. Dances will be walked through during the Recap (Walk as I talk). David and Avril will make sure that we will get a wonderful Recap.
Few times a year beginners workshops take place. A good opportunity to practise steps and basic figures. Please contact us to get further information.
The SCDH have performed in many places in Hamburg, to name a few: in the City Hall (das Rathaus) as well as on the square in front of it, in the CCH, the Schauspielhaus, the Musikhalle, the Auditorium Maximum, at 'Britfest / Hafengeburtstag' at various places along the river Elbe, in the Museum für Völkerkunde, and, last but not least regularly at 'British Flair'), the annual outdoor event which usually takes place in August at the Polo Club in Klein Flottbek.
