Friday, May 19th. 7:30 – 10:30 pm Ceilidh/Twmpath/Barn Dance
Following the great success of our last two Ceilidh/Twmpath/Barn Dance, the Society has got together with the Rattlebone Band to organize another dance. The earlier dances attracted a large number of dancers both young and, um, well, older (!), including couples, singles, families with school-age children and grandparents, and you can read an account of the first event and see the photographs in the Society’s November 2016 newsletter. Since the first dance, we’ve received a lot of feedback from people who hugely enjoyed the event and there have been many requests for more dances.
The next dance will be held at The Cambrian Hall and will again feature The Rattlebone Band with JD Erskine as the caller. All dances taught on the spot! Come along and have some fun! Beer, wine, coffee, soft drinks and snacks will be available for sale.
- $10 (13 years and older)
- $5 (6 – 12 years)
- Free (5 years and under)
