Dunfermline's Wonderful Weather!

In Memory of Stuart Adamson



Search here for ballroom performances if you know the date or want to browse a particular era.

The performances are listed initially by decade and then sometimes by year depending on how much data there was to fill your screen with!

It can be assumed that all performances took place in the evening unless otherwise stated. Where more than one performance took place on a particular date, the main listing will be for the later one with a comment relating to the earlier one in the remarks column.

Simply click the appropriate decade or year button and scroll to the date(s) that interest you.  The list will display each headline act and any supporting acts on the bill along with occasional comments you may find interesting.  You may then wish to click on a performer's name to read a short biography or click any 'memory' icon (Click here to go to 'Memories') to read the memories of fellow viewers.

If you can put any inaccuracies right, especially if you have some corroborating evidence such as ticket stubs you can scan, please use the Feedback form and share it.
