(For those of you who haven’t been before, a Ceilidh is a traditional, spontaneous, Irish or Scottish social gathering which includes music and dancing.)
The venue will be the lovely area behind the grandstand and under the trees where we will be creating The Bell Beer Garden with delicious and reasonably priced food!
We have a fantastic line-up this year which includes five very talented Ceilidh Bands from all over South Africa competing in a fun ‘Battle of the Bands’ contest… the winners getting a slot at the main Concert on Saturday evening.
The very talented harpist and singer Christy-Lyn will once again be joining us.
The highlight of the evening will be our incredibly talented guest stars from Scotland Chris Stout and Catriona McKay. This is NOT TO BE MISSED!!!
