Quaker Summer Ceilidh
Edinburgh United Kingdom
Share this event:

We hope you can join us for what promises to be a delightfully warm summer's evening of ceilidh dancing, soaring flute, sharing of food and drink, and companionship.

We've room for up to 180 dancers and three hours of dances with music and calling by the splendid Hud Yer Wheesht as well as support from local musicians on mandolin, fiddles, guitar and voice.

We're encouraging people to bring a picnic tea for their friends and family between the first and second sets. Hopefully the sun will shine and we can eat in the garden but otherwise the hall will be cosy.

Please bring:

 - food for your picnic tea
 - cash for the raffle and bar (cards also accepted)
 - a reusable water bottle - to save on some of the washing of glasses!

The evening's programme:

 5pm doors open, bar serving
 5.30pm set one - Hud Yer Wheesht
