Do you enjoy having fun? Are you capable of laughing at others for being just as incompetent as yourself? Are you intrigued to see what the Scots came up with when they decided that the one thing the waltz was missing was some good ole stamping? Do you want to spin someone so fast you think their heads might take off? Do you want to see first hand that Scottish dancing is even more fun when everyone is terrible at it? Do you want to get ready for Burns and Turns 2022?




Then do I have just the ticket for you!




The Scottish Cultural centre still doesn't seem to be able to run ceilidhs, but they are restricted to indoor spaces. The only solution to this is to run our own outdoor ceilidh! I've yet to drag anyone along to a ceilidh who then failed to have a good time, and the more VOCers I find to drag only makes for a better night. It even doubles up as a good workout (the time Rosanna came along I could barely walk the next day!). So come one, come all, drag all you can find and lets have a night to remember!

The plan is to choose a large covered area in a yet to be decided park, light it up with whatever lamps we happen upon, spotify and some speakers can provide the music, and I can call a number of ceilidh dances. I'm also hopeful that there are other celts from other parts of the world who can help us out with a dance or two of their own. I'll even do my best to provide hot drinks. What more can you want on a Friday eve? Anyone who would like to help make this happen let me know. Connor made a slack thread thingy which people can certainly use to help with logistics (though if you'd prefer just to send an email I won't complain about this either). This link can get you onto the slack page.


I'll email all signed up before the event with a chosen location. Hope to see as many keeners there as possible!
