The band has been arranging a series of ceilidhs which take place four or five times a year on a Sunday evening. Details of the next 'HOME-GROWN' ceilidh are in the diary section and also below.
There are two aims. One is to build up a regular group of dancers who can come regularly and learn a repertoire of dances. The other is to work with local voluntary/community groups who can invite their supporters and share in the takings from the ceilidh. The format is informal with the band and those attending bringing their own food to share at the half way point in the dance. There is sometimes a BAR, and sometimes we say "No bar tonight! Bring your own drinks."
The Ceilidhs are held at the Broomhall Centre, Broomspring Lane, Sheffield S10 2FB.
We are hoping to be able to resume our normal programme of ceilidhs in 2022 depending on the Covid19 situation. Details will be circulated as soon as it is possible to make definite arrangements.
Virtual Home Grown Ceilidh
While the Home Grown Ceilidhs were suspended, we held two virtual Home Grown Ceilidhs on 20th September and 22nd November 2020.
