Following on from our well attended and successful events at the end of last year, we begin this year with our annual Chieftain’s Ceilidh.
This event was cancelled last year due to the world event which hit every country. However, all is looking better this year and we are planning to make it another good night.
The evening will commence at 6.30pm with a ‘piped’ welcome at the door by our honorary piper Alisdair McLaren followed by a selection of Scottish tunes from the 51 ACU Swan Regiment Drums and Pipes
There will be a two course meal complete with a complimentary bottle of red and white wine on each table. There will be bar facilities which will serve drinks up until 11.00pm
Dancing will commence around 8.40pm with a good selection of Scottish jigs and reels, with a few ‘ballroom dances’ for those that prefer a more placid style of dancing.
The evening will include our raffle with plenty of prizes and a collection of tunes by our honorary piper

Dance practice evenings

We will be holding three dance practice evenings prior to the Chieftain’s Ceilidh. If you attended the dance practice evenings for the 2020 Ball and 2021 Burns Supper, then these three practice evenings will be a lot easier to follow as we will be repeating most of the same dances.
Details of where and when the dance classes are being held are available via this post together with a list of the dances. Dancing starts at 7.30pm, which leaves you plenty of time to get home from work and have something to eat first. Should you find yourself rushed for time, the Irish Club do meals on a Tuesday night at a very reasonable cost. The classes are a great opportunity for beginners to learn a few of the more common jigs and reels we will be doing on the night and for those that can dance to refresh their memories!
There is also the opportunity for some social time after the dancing to get to know others. The bar at the Irish Club will be open until 10.00pm.
