BATH CEILIDHS are no ordinary barn dances. Buzzing with upbeat energy right from the start, the great bands we book give you a thrilling and amazing evening of exuberant dancing and fun, whatever your age or experience.

The music generally has its roots in British traditional music, but with a contemporary, eclectic and sometimes cross-cultural bias. The bands we have booked are amongst the best in the country and have appeared at all the top venues/festivals, travelling a considerable distance to play for you. (See the bands individual websites)

There is a caller at all the dances to guide you through so it is no problem if you have never done anything like this before. Don't worry if you go wrong, it just adds to the fun!
