What's a Ceilidh? well first of all you don't say it like that, it's "Kay-Lay"...there, that's it.
Right, well it's like barn-dancing, just better. It brings everyone together (any age) to have brilliant fun and best of all there are no dancing skill required – just enthusiasm! I've managed to get The Little Biggar Band to play / call which is really exciting - they're amazing musicians from my home-town in Scotland, so it's a great chance to enjoy authentic, traditional Scottish ceilidh music at its best, complete with jigs and the reels. Oh, and there’s even delicious hot supper included in the ticket-price to provide you with all the energy you could need [only if tickets have been purchased before 12:00 noon, 24/11/2010].
The evening has been organised as an excuse for a party but also to raise some money for the club so that we can get closer to building those lovely single-track trails we all dream of at our allotment in Longleat.
Aside from dancing, wearing tartan and drinking Iron-Bru we'll also be holding a raffle in aid of Re-cycle; a charity which collects secondhand bicycles and ships them to Africa. Their partners distribute bikes and teach riders the skills to repair and maintain them as affordable transport. The bikes also help health/AIDS workers reach remote villages and even provide an ambulance service in remote Namibia - it's a wonderful cause.
The venue capacity is between 300-400 and tickets have been selling fast so buy yours now to avoid disappointment and guarantee a plate of supper (just click on the image to be taken to the shop). Oh and the event is open to everyone, so bring your nan!
