English Ceilidh (pronounced kaylee) is a lively, energetic, and upbeat version of English barn or country dancing, suitable for all ages. Bands play exciting music with good rhythmic drive from a variety of musical traditions, including rock, jazz, world, and roots music as well as English, Scottish, and Irish folk music. A caller guides novices and experienced dancers alike through each of the dances; you can turn up and have fun with no prior knowledge of what is going to happen. Wear comfortable shoes or trainers, and cool clothing; you can get quite warm whilst dancing. English Ceilidh is social dancing at its best. Come with a partner, a group of friends, or on your own; there will be plenty of people to dance with. Come prepared to enjoy yourself and have a great evening.
Doors open at 19:15 for a 19:30 start. Dances finish at 23:30. There will be a 20 minute or so break part way through the evening. Licensed bar. Full price: £12 Student: £10 Child at school (18 and under): £8 Family: at least one adult and two children: £8 per person
