What's a ceilidh? The word is Gaelic (pronounced "kay-lee") and means literally "meeting". It has been used over the centuries to describe traditional social dancing, where groups of people perform dances handed down over the years to jigs, reels, hornpipes, polkas and the like. So, come along and dance your cares away!

Friday Night Mega CeilidhCentre 70 8:00 PM - 10:30 PM

The Old Chapel Band with caller Polly Dare, and feature spot from Old Speckled Hen. Featuring Keith Holloway on melodeon, Heather White on tenor sax, Taz Tarry on fiddle and Toby Goss on clarinet, The Old Chapel Band came together to play one ceilidh in an Oxford college, but right from the first rehearsal (in an old chapel) it became obvious that this was never going to be a “one-off”. The energy and enjoyment that burst forth was too good not to share with a wider audience, and so it continues, constantly expanding the band's repertoire, finding tunes that give pleasure to players and dancers alike. We defy you to sit still when The Old Chapel Band hits the stage!
