A Right Good Knees Up

If you like your exercise to be sociable, why not get yourself down to our fundraising ceilidh at the Crown Hotel on Friday 13 April? We’ll be dancing to the rousing tunes of the Wraggle Taggle ceilidh band. They’re awesome – but don’t take our word for it! Here’s a review from their website:

“Everyone was dancing”
“Amazing!!! The band was superb. (16th September 2017 Saturday Granta, 14 Newnham Rd, Cambridge CB3 9EX) The songs were performed to the highest standard, and they were FUN. Our guests had an amazing time, and by the end, everyone was dancing. At one point, the band even called a miniature impromptu ceilidh dance: we don’t know who initiated this, but it was a fantastic read of the crowd, who adored it. Again, we received so many compliments on the band” Morgan & Scott Shepard 28th Sept 2017
