For those who haven’t yet looked at the website, we have plumped for a ceilidh for the night reception. If you don’t know how to say the word Ceilidh then just think of Kaylee by Marillion.(If you have no idea about that song then where have you been?)
For those who have no idea what one of those is then we thought we would explain what it involves and what to expect.
Originally the word Ceilidh (kay-lee) descended from the Gaelic word for ‘gathering’ or ‘party’…
The beauty of a ceilidh or Barn Dance is that everyone can take part, young or old, experienced dancers to beginners and even those with two left feet(which I am sure there will be plenty of after a few drinks inside them).
With a Ceilidh you’re walked through the steps so there’s nothing to be nervous about. The most important thing is to listen to the caller who will work with band to teach you the steps.
The band that we have chosen are ‘This Way Up’ who are a Shropshire Ceilidh band. More details can be found on :
We all hope you have a go at it and enjoy. Don’t worry if you want some other music to dance to we will be popping a Spotify list together for the music for after the band finishes. If you would like to make suggestions then just comment on this post and we will add them to the list if we can. We will post the music lists a bit closer to the time.
