BBQ and Ceilidh fun

BBQ and Ceilidh fun

Grab a burger and dust off those dancing shoes!

… or trainers… or whatever is comfortable! On Saturday 28th September, we are going to have a great afternoon, starting off with a family BBQ, followed by a Ceilidh. Our BBQ will have something to satisfy every hungry stomach, and there’ll be plenty of opportunities to catch up with friends and family, but do stick around as the afternoon continues into the evening!

With a professional ceilidh band and caller, join us for what will be a great, fun night of music and dancing that everyone can join in with. Bring your own refreshments or buy some while you’re there, and get dancing! The caller will lead us through all the dances; so it doesn’t matter if you’ve not done it before, and you can drop in and out as you feel.
