Wed 12th, tbc, Linlithgow Palace courtyard open air, 7:30pm-10pm, £10.00, organised by Linlithgow Scotch Hop SCIO, email: ScotchHopCommittee@GMail.com. Lively, friendly and fun. Scottish dancing for all in the unique historic palace courtyard. Lots of great inclusive dances for all to enjoy. Alternative venue in wet weather Low Port Centre, opposite Tesco, down from the station. Venue will be confirmed by 5:30pm on the evening here. Ticket price includes tea and shortbread at the interval. Join us for the 31st season. Season tickets available for all 5 evenings. ... We very much regret to announce the cancellation of our 2022 summer season of dancing for the third year running. This year the main reason is not Covid, but the temporary closure of Linlithgow Palace for safety reasons, while Historic Environment Scotland undertakes high level masonry inspections. The survey can only be carried out during the summer months, and it is therefore unlikely that the Palace will re-open in time for our usual July/August season in 2022. We are so sorry to disappoint our many supporters throughout the world who love the unique experience of Scottish dancing in such a beautiful and historic setting. We are looking at the possibility of holding a one-off event later in the year, and very much hope that Linlithgow Scotch Hop will fully return in 2023. Thank you for your patience and understanding!
