The 2018 Ceilidh is all done…

…and didn’t we have a ball? We met great people, swung ’em about with abandon and laughed.

Borderline Kaylee played wonderfully. Robin Simpson called dances for everyone – youngest to oldest; novice to experienced; fit to needs-more-ceilidhs.


We left the traditional Castlemaine Highland Pipe Band number 1 kit at home and played some tunes in our casuals. Checkout fb for footage.


Pipe Sergeant Vic even gave Borderline Kaylee a break by playing for Strip the Willow (and if you want to know what that means, well, you’ll just have to come along to our next ceilidh).

The sumptuous raffle and door prize hampers were well received by the winners. None of this would have been possible without the superb produce from our local donors –
