Poynton Ceilidhs

We’re Back!

Poynton Ceilidh will be restarting on Saturday October 29th, 2022. The first ceilidh will feature local favourites Albireo, caller TBC.

After a lengthy hiatus, we’re very pleased to be restarting Poynton Ceilidh in October. Like many other events, we’ll be keeping an eye on things and will update on any measures or restrictions that we feel are appropriate. In the meantime, get the date in your diaries and dust off your dancing shoes.

We’re looking forward to seeing you all again on the 29th!

Dancing to live traditional music

Dancers

Poynton Ceilidhs bring you high-energy dancing to some of the best ceilidh bands from the North West and beyond. Don’t worry if you’re new to ceilidh dancing, or a forgetful expert — each evening will feature a caller who will guide you through the dances. The music is always live and dances come from a range of styles and times: from stately 16th century French branles, through traditional English dances, American square sets all the way to modern compositions from our callers. The one thing they all have in common is that they’re fun and can be fast and furious!

Hands

Dances are always clearly explained and walked through before the music starts playing. They’re usually for sets of couples, but that doesn’t mean you can’t come on your own. A ceilidh is a great social mixer and you’ll have no problems finding a partner. There’s no dress code, but you might want to wear some comfortable shoes. It can warm up when the dancing gets going, but there’s a bar for the thirsty.

Whether you’re new to ceilidhs or you’re a seasoned dancer; whether you’re old, young or somewhere in between, a ceilidh’s a great evening for everyone.
