Conference Room, HVH

The next Haddenham Ceilidhs event takes place in the village hall on Saturday, 7th March at 8pm. Dancing in the main hall will feature Mary Panton calling for The Jam and Crumpet Band. Four great Warwickshire musicians come together in a new group to provide super foot-tapping dance music.
The dance display will be by Berkshire Bedlam — fantastic, exciting and energetic Cotswold morris dancing!
While in the Walter Rose Room, Archie Fisher will perform. Leaving aside Archie's immeasurable contribution to Scottish folk music as a broadcaster, his achievements as a singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer make his place in the annals secure. He stands as a linchpin figure between that music's rural past and its largely urban present; between the Celtic and American folk-song traditions, both old and new.
Doors open 7.15pm, dancing stars at 8pm and the concert starts at 8.50pm. Archie's first spot will be in the ceilidh at 8.40pm.
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.
