Charitable Incorporated Organisation
HDS has been approved to become a Charitable Incorporated Organisation with a new charity number 1178919. This is a new form of charity promoted and regulated by the Charity Commission. The advantages of making the change include protections for our trustees, making HDS more attractive to new trustees and facilitating any future grant applications. The change takes immediate effect, and the previous charity will be wound up at the end of September this year to allow for any financial transactions in the pipeline, especially those related to the summer school, to be completed.
New book: Dances of Court and Country from the time of Elizabeth I and James I
We have published a new book providing instructions for the dances on the CD of the same name that are not in the existing Tudors & Stuarts book.
Would you like to contribute to the work of the HDS by joining the committee? We currently have vacancies for two committee members/trustees. If you are interested, please contact Peter Barnard firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss what is involved.
