Family Ceilidh


On Saturday afternoon join in with the fun in front of the Library Gardens Main Stage. Festival stalwarts The Famous Potatoes (who have played 24 out of 26 festivals!) will lead crowds in a family ceilidh. Originally the word Ceilidh (kay-lee) descended from the Gaelic word for ‘gathering’ or ‘party’. The beauty of a ceilidh is that everyone can take part, young or old, experienced dancers to beginners and even those with two left feet! A ‘caller’ will be with you every step of the way, walking you through the moves – no experience is necessary, and everyone is welcome.
