Ceilidh Dance with Mr Medler and the Mad March Hare Ceilidh Band

Ceilidh dance brings people together in a way, which breaks down the usual social barriers. Cultural background, age, gender…and yes, even sometimes men dance with men! ‘Pop up’ Ceilidhs like the dances we’ve previously held at the Harbour Festival only help to increase the diversity of the dancers, and for those not wanting, or not able to dance, it still provides a spectacle and a chance to see how a diverse group of people can come together and have fun.
