Do Participants Need to Wear Anything Special?

As long as they wear 'sensible' shoes (no high heels) just about anything goes. Remember however, that you will be dancing, so loose casual clothing might be more comfortable - particularly when you start to warm up.

How Much Does a Band Charge?

The cost will depend on which band you chose, the date and times, the type of event, location, venue and number of people attending. Please contact us for a firm quote.

How Long Will the Ceilidh Last?

Most bands offer performances  of between 1 and 3.5 hours with breaks as appropriate but  we are always happy to discuss your particular requirements.
