The Haddenhan ceilidh and concert season commences on Saturday 1st October and organisers are keen to see many new guests coming along to Haddenham Village Hall on that evening.

For the Ceilidh in the Main Hall, dancing starts at 8.00pm with music provided by Hekety and Gordon Potts calling the dances. In addition, old friends Towersey Morris will be providing the dance display.

Hekety are from Sheffield and formed in 1997. They play cutting edge English dance music, mixing traditional and self penned tunes on fiddle, melodeon,cittern, clarinet and guitars. Members of this band play in many other bands and combinations including the Melrose Quartet. Gordon Potts took up calling, apparently by mistake whilst being foreman of the Hammersmith Morris Men. He has come on a long way since then!

Meanwhile, the concert in the intimate Walter Rose Room will start at 8.40pm with a short spot from compere, Kitty Vernon, followed by a 20 minute spot from Saul Bailey and then two 45 minute sessions from the main guest of the evening, Les Barker.

Saul Bailey plays mainly English traditional music on melodeon and English concertina. Les Barker is unique. He is an English poet who gave up the exciting world of accountancy to become something of a cultural phenomenon. Miss Les and you will miss a lifetime experience! He was absolutely brilliant at last weekend's Bromyard folk festival

Doors open 7.15pm, dancing starts at 8pm. and an admission charge of £12, lets you dance or enjoy the concert or perhaps a bit of both! Organisers very rarely put up " House Full " signs — it is a large venue — but if you are concerned about gaining admission on the evening, just email or telephone John Heydon and he will reserve tickets for you on the door.
