All Ages

Ticket Information:

  • Free Admission

Grab your friends and head down to the Square for a Ceilidh Under the Stars! Join us for the fun of a Traditional Scottish social dance, with the music of Twisty Willow Celtic Band. Ceilidh (pronounced kay-lee) is a Gaelic word meaning an informal gathering for music and dancing. So, grab your partner or a stranger, and fling them round the Square! You don’t need any experience as all of the moves are explained and “called” while you dance. Bring the family or a group of mates and have fun learning as you dance to the lively, infectious beat of Celtic music.
Twisty Willow Celtic Band have been playing and calling these dances for Kiwis who have never danced them before for years.

Suitable for all ages and abilities.

Dance the night away at Bandstand Under the Stars on Friday and Saturday evenings. Learn some new moves or show off the ones you already have. Each weekend evening, whether it’s Salsa, Swing, a Celtic Ceilidh (pronounced kay-lee) or classic Ballroom, come and get your groove on with a live band. Bring your friends and family or take the chance to meet someone new, everyone is welcome no matter what your ability and it’s free to join in. There will be dance instructors on hand to show everyone the moves as well as plenty of room to freestyle, or just listen to the music. Grab a drink, a bite to eat and dance the night away in Aotea Square.

We even have stylists on site to help you glam up your hair and makeup in the style of the night.
