The easiest way to get information on the uni dance circuit is to join the mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org.
The dances tend to follow the same calender every year:
2nd weekend - Dunedin / Aurora
3rd weekend - Newcastle / St Andrews
4th weekend - (New Scotland) Edinburgh /Alba
1/2 weekend - SUSCDF (Scottish Universities Festival - venue variable)
Last weekend - New Scotland Ball
1st weekend - Glasgow Ball
2nd weekend - St Andrews Ball
3rd weekend - Newcastle (sometimes)
IVFDF - variable location
2nd weekend - Newcastle (if not held in Feb)
3 weekend - Oxford/Cambridge Ball
3/4 weekend - Dunedin Ball
3/4 weekend - Dundee Ball
1st weekend (Sun) - St Andrews Castle Ceilidh
4th weekend - Aurora Ball
2nd weekend - Dunedin
3rd weekend - New Scotland
Thus this weekend we have New Scotland (see e-mail of a couple of days ago) and Alba. SUSCDF this year is in Glasgow on 7th December. IVFDF is in Sheffield.
I'll try to remember to post details as and when I get them.
There is also SCD groups in Aberdeen and Leeds universities, but as far as I know they don't run regular dances.
