Happiness is Scottish Country Dancing

About Us


Jubilee Toast to the Queen June 2nd 2022

Platinum  Jubilee Dance 2nd June 2022

We are a group of dancers in the Yeovil, South Somerset and Dorset area, who meet weekly and enjoy Scottish Country Dancing.

Dancing is an excellent exercise, and  it always cheers you up- the dances are varied, and learning them exercises the brain as well as the body- the recent lockdowns have proved to all of us the value of exercising and  meeting and interacting with people who share the sheer JOY of dancing.

We welcome new beginners, (come along and give it a try- your first two visits are FREE), local dancers and  those on holiday in  the area.

"Happiness is Scottish Country dancing"  is so true 


We dance at the Davis Hall, West Camel, BA22 7QX on Thursday evenings 7.30 - 9.30pm.

The Hall has a large car park and a beautiful sprung floor perfect for dancing...

 We meet every Thursday from 7.30-9.30pm from September 8th 2022 to December 15th then January 5th 2023  to June 29th 2023  Our AGM will  be held on 11th May 2023 

We also have two or three Social dances at Christmas, Spring and Summer

Howell Hill Closures 2022

At present there is no access to the village from the A303 via Howell Hill. Currently you can come into the village via the other A303 exit. Subject to further road closures the options will  be:
If travelling West on the A303(from London). Take the next left after the usual exit for West Camel. Follow this road through the village then turn left by the pub.   Alternatively,  Come off at Queen Camel roundabout and drive through Queen Camel before turning right at the mini roundabout. 
If travelling East ( from Devon direction). Turn right off the A303 at the crossroads exit. This is before the Howell Hill exit. This is first right after the cafe and there is a crossroads sign.  Alternatively come off at Podimore Roundabout and head through Podimore and Bridghampton villages. This does not affect anyone arriving from the A359 (Yeovil to Queen Camel Road)
