Ceilidh Dancers 01

The first event of Haddenham Ceilidhs' 42nd season on Saturday October 5th features Barry Goodman in the main hall, calling for GBBH (Grimes, Brimsford, Burgess & Horsley), a wonderful band with a wealth of experience and a great sound!

The format for dance displays at our ceilidhs is usually two spots of around 10 minutes but this time we have rally pushed the boat out. The National Youth Folklore Troupe of England will be performing between 8.30pm and 9.30pm. The performances of this exciting troupe, made up of youngsters between 10 and 18 can include Social Dance, Clog and Stepping, Cotswold, Border and North West Morris, Garland, Longsword and Rapper. All the dance items are performed to excellent musical accompaniments, whilst musical items in their own right and songs are all vital aspects of their programme.

And if that's not enough, then in our concert venue, we welcome Andy Cutting. Andy is a rarity. A musician's musician: a soulful and technically outstanding melodeon practitioner with an ear for a fine tune.

Doors open 7pm, dancing in the main hall starts at 7.30pm and in our concert venue, Andy Cutting's concert starts at 8.45pm. Admission to the Village Hall £11, lets you move between both venues should you so wish.

Just also to remind you of our November 2nd ceilidh and concert with Alex Cumming calling for The New Slide, a dance display from Hartbeats African Drum and Dance Group and in concert, Steve Turner whilst on December 7th our Festival featuring Whapweasel, both in concert and playing for the ceilidh,Nick Walden,The Magical Christmas Tree (featuring Pete Morton, Maggie Boyle & Chris Parkinson), Sue Brown & Lorraine Irwing and Tom mcConville with David Newey.
