Learn the Ceilidh

The village of Haddenham in Buckinghamshire have regular concerts, and ceilidhs and concerts at their village hall, but come Christmas, they have a special festival with extra merriment. This year's Haddenham Festival is on the 7th December, and starting from 3pm, you'll be able to ceilidh your way down the hall.

What is a ceilidh you ask? It is a traditional Gaelic social gathering that originates from Ireland and Scotland. It includes folk music, and barn dance like routines.

Musicians performing at the festival include Tom McConville, 'The Newcastle Fiddler', Dave Newy, duet-ers Sue Brown and Lorraine Irwing , and the BBC FOLK Award Winning band, Whapweasel. Just to had to the Yuletide cheer, a special appearance will be made by The Magical Christmas Tree, a group of seasonal folk performers.

The festival lasts until 11.30pm, and for a full day adult tickets are 22-26. Alternatively you can choose to just attend just the afternoon or evening, in which case, tickets are between 12-14. Students and children also get discounts.
