The next event organised by Haddenham Ceilidhs is this Saturday evening, March 4th, at Haddenham Village Hall.

For the Ceilidh in the Main Hall, dancing starts at 8.00pm with music provided by Phoenix Dance Band and Barry Goodman calling the dances. The Haddenham Hoofers will give a dance display.

According to organiser, John Heydon, "the Phoenix Dance Band comprise a group of fine, very experienced and talented musicians playing music suitable for English social dance. No gimmicks, nothing flashy, just straight ahead dance music played by people who have been around, know their business and play with an empathy developed over years of playing together and sounding really happy."

In the Walter Rose room, regular compere Kitty Vernon will start the proceedings just after 8.30pm and will introduce Tom McConnville and one of last year's New Roots Finalists, Rosie Hodgson and Rowan Piggott.

"There are many fine players but every now and then you hear a player with such humanity and finesse it shines like a beacon in the tradition. Such a player is Tom McConville."

Doors open 7.15pm, dancing starts at 8.00pm. An admission charge of £12, lets you dance or enjoy the concert or perhaps a bit of both! "House Full" signs rarely go up as it's 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.
