Haddenham Ceilidhs' final event for the current season at Haddenham Village Hall is this Saturday, June 6th at 8pm.

For the ceilidh, the Nina Hansell All Stars will be performing. This is a one off chance to see an amazing band that are supporting the ceilidh series with a special performance. Nina (fiddle) has PolkaWorks chums, Fi Fraser (fiddle) and Gareth Kiddier(piano) to join the talented Jackie Oates (viola).

Event organisers are also thrilled that two of the best box players in the country have been persuaded to join the band for the night. Martin Ellison (melodeon, ex Ran Tan band and Roger Edwards (Anglo concertina, Trio Threlfall) are well known for their sublime playing together previously. Thanks to Nina for such a wonderful lineup.

With the dances called by Aiden Hansell, you can expect a great evening.

For the dance display in the ceilidh, Thrales Rapper will perform traditional rapper sword dances of north east England. Exciting rapper sword dances and Thrales one of the best.

For the concert, Martyn Wyndham-Read, one of the all time masters. A warm-voiced singer and fine guitarist; a justifiably respected veteran!

Don't miss out this Saturday. Let the final Haddenham Ceilidh and concert go out with a roaring success!

If you cannot make it, you will have to wait until Saturday 3rd October when the ceilidh season starts again with Fee Lock calling for Cock and Bull and in the concert venue, Life and Times. Can you wait 4 months??

Doors open 7.15pm, dancing starts at 8.00pm and the concerts start at 8.50pm.

Admission to the venue, £11, lets you dance or enjoy the concert or perhaps a bit of both! Organisers rarely put up " House Full " signs as the village hall provides a wonderful venue but if you are concerned about gaining admission on the evening, just email or telephone John Heydon and he can arrange that tickets will be held for you on the door.
