Located in the city of Christchurch, New Zealand, the Canterbury Caledonian Society has a strong membership base, and includes sections for Highland & National Dancing, Scottish Country Dancing, Collections & Archives, Pipe Bands (four) and a College of Piping & Drumming.


The 2011 Canterbury Earthquakes destroyed our premises in Kilmore Street in central Christchurch.  The old premises were built in 1923 and served the Society well.  As recently as mid-2015, we opened our new, modern facility in the western Christchurch suburb of Wigram, since when the Society’s groups have enjoyed their new home and the bond of membership which makes the Society, has been strengthened.
