SCOTTISH CEILIDH CLUB NEWS & DATES.

Beat off the winter blues and get cosy down at the Ceilidh Club. We've got a whole load of ceilidhs coming up in the next few weeks, so if you fancy a good night out then come along and join us.

We are in our busiest spell of the year at present so please book as soon as you know that you want to come along. You can buy tickets here - http://www.ceilidhclub.com/Bookings.aspx.

Valentine's night - Are you looking for an alternative Valentine's night? We are holding a ceilidh at Hammersmith Town Hall and men can still buy tickets online. Ladies, we try to keep the numbers balanced and you are always faster to book than men, so I'm sorry to say that we have sold out of all the advanced female tickets. However you can still get in on the door if you bring a man. I know this sounds a bit strange but it is something our customers have requested.

Couples if you would like to come along to the ceilidh on the 14th Feb - you can - we will have red dots that you can wear to show that you are already taken.
