The next event organised by Haddenham Ceilidhs is Saturday 4th February in the village hall.
For the Ceilidh in the main hall, dancing starts at 8.00pm with music provided by Bursledon Village Band and Ian Nichols calling the dances and Berkshire Bedlam providing a dance display.
Bursledon Village Band play straightforward English country dance music, which is infectious and good to dance to. No need to say anything else!
For the folk concert in the Walter Rose room, compere Kitty Vernon will start the proceedings just after 8.30pm and will introduce Saul Rose and James Delarre and one of last year's New Roots Finalists, Sophie Crawford.
James Delarre and Saul Rose combined thrilling fiddle performances with some of the finest melodeon players playing. This duo harnesses all the subtleties of traditional music while producing an exciting and energetic display of musicianship.
For the twenty minute spot preceding James and Saul, Sophie Crawford will play accordion and sing a blend of traditional and original music grounded in the English folk tradition.
Doors open 7.15pm, dancing starts at 8pm.
An admission charge of £12 lets you dance or enjoy the concert or perhaps a bit of both!

Details of the Haddenham Ceilidhs programme up to June 2017 are available on the website.
