Thanks to you all for another lovely evening. We even had a 'thank you' email! 

The band lived up to our highest hopes, great dancing music. Phil was a charming caller.

This was the first ceilidh of the season and we had a really good number of dancers. All this on the peak sporting day of the year! for more details

You can now book and pay for your advance tickets online! Advance booking closes 24 hours before the event.

Payments will be processed by PayPal so the system is pretty safe. You can have a ticket to print yourself or simply collect at the door (please bring your receipt e-mail.

We are beginners at this and there were some people for whom the online system didn't work properly. Apologies again if that happened to you - please let us know if you have a problem so we can try to fix it. I did say try....
I'm expecting a big turnout for Threepenny Bit on 14th November. Both they and Martyn Harvey are popular on the folk festival circuit and are worth travelling for.

This may be a good time to be sure of your tickets in advance....
and if you are at all interested in calling for ceilidhs there's a free workshop in the afternoon.
Calling all callers! Renowned caller Martyn Harvey will be putting on a callers workshop before the ceilidh on Nov 14th. This is suitable for all callers, new or experienced. Free but booking needed. You can book tickets at the same time as booking tickets online for the Threepenny Bit ceilidh, or phone or email michael at spenceley dot net 01443 476 164

Free but priceless!
