Dinner dances at the Assembly Rooms

1967-68
Dinner dances at the Assembly Rooms

About this memory

Colin and Hilary Ross remember attending a ‘Scottish Widows’ staff dance at the Assembly Rooms in the late 1960s.
They are standing at the top of one of the stairwells and a reflection of the camera flash can be seen in the mirrored gallery – now fully restored with windows as it would have been in 1787!
