Members' Meeting: It's Cèilidh time!

  • Tonbridge Teen & Twenty Club Riverside Lawn Road Tonbridge, TN9 1EP United Kingdom (map)

Kick up your heels and blow away the post Christmas blues with a fun evening of Scottish dancing to celebrate Burns night.  

We have booked a professional dance caller to come and give us a demonstration of some of the most familiar (and easiest! ) dance steps – don’t worry if you have never tried it before – the evening is aimed at complete beginners with two left feet ! 

It's not compulsory to join in – there will be seating if you want to watch first, but I'm sure that when the music starts playing and your feet start tapping, you’ll soon find yourself heading for the floor! 

Caller: John Scholey

Ceilidh caller “extraordinaire” Morris dancer, melodeon player and all round human dynamo! John has been calling barn dances and ceilidhs for more years than he cares to mention. He is very knowledgeable about the dance repertoire and has a particular liking for and expertise in Scottish Country Dancing. If you book John to call for your function using recorded music he is likely to whip out his melodeon and drum machine to add some live music to the mix.

Always colourful and larger than life, John is also the official Town Crier for Royal Tunbridge Wells and can MC for your event as well as providing the entertainment.
