Organiser John Heydon reminds us that the last Haddenham Ceilidh of the current season is at Haddenham Village Hall on Saturday 7th June, at 8pm.

"For the ceilidh we have The Gareth Kiddier All Stars with Aiden Hansel calling for the dancing. This a special one off event and Gareth says "I am thrilled to have put together a band that has been gifted the name, Gareth Kiddier All Stars to celebrate another Haddenham ceilidh. Under the auspices of John Heydon and his team, this dance series has run through thick and thin, and sometimes snow, and we are all pleased to give something back for a change.

So far, the band includes Simon Care and Nick Cooke on melodeons, and Nina Hansell and Fi Frazer on fiddles, with Aidan Hansell calling, but there may be other guests on the night, who knows.

Please come and dance to Gareth Kiddier and his All-Stars on 7th June and help support Haddenham Ceilidhs. This is a one off event and the chance to dance to some fantastic musicians.

In addition to this we also welcome Crooked Moon, a fine Appalachian dance side and in our concert venue we welcome back, Magpie Lane, a five piece folk band from Oxford specialising in traditional English songs and dance tunes who combine powerful vocals with vigourous dance tunes with inventive arrangements on acoustic instruments.

Doors open 7.15pm, dancing stars at 8pm and the concert starts at 8.45pm. Magpie Lane's spot in the ceilidh is at 8.30pm and they will be in the concert venue from 9pm. Admission to the venue, £11, lets you dance or enjoy the concert or perhaps a bit of both! If you are concerned about gaining admission on the evening, just email or telephone and we can arrange payment by debit/credit card and tickets will be held for you on the door.

Don't miss out on this one!! Otherwise you will have to wait until the start of our new season on 4th October."
