Organiser, Julia Briscoe, said: "I was brought up in Scotland. I've lived in Newham for years and one of the things I love about it is how culturally diverse it is here. But there needs to be a bit more Scottish in the mix!"

There will be traditional Scottish food, including smoked salmon canapes and a vegetarian option.

Tickets include a free dram on arrival to warm people up and get them ready to dance.

Tickets are £20. Visit codydock.eventbrite.co.uk

Doors open 8pm.
