As part of the NZ Irish Fest the Christchurch Irish Society.

Welcomes you to a Cèilidh!

Bring the family to this traditional Irish social gathering. We have great musicians waiting to get your feet tapping and moving to the music.

In its most basic form, it simply means a social visit. In contemporary usage, it usually involves playing Gaelic folk music and dancing, either at a house party or a larger concert at a social hall or other community gathering place.

The music is cheerful and lively, consisting of jigs, reels, hornpipes, polkas, slip-jigs and waltzes, the basic steps can be learned easily; a short instructional session will be provided for new dancers before the start of the dance itself.

Some of the dances are named after famous regiments, historical battles and events, others after items of daily rural life. The “Gay Gordons”, “Siege of Ennis”, “The Walls of Limerick” and “The Stack of Barley” are popular.

Doors open 3.00pm. Dancing starts at 4.00pm. Come early and get a seat and listen to the musicians get ready for a great couple of hours of dancing.

The hall is situated up the long driveway, directly next to Spreydon Domain, and there is plenty of off-street parking.

Door sales cash only.

Family $20.00 (2 Adults & 2 children), Adult (single) $10.00 and $5.00 (single) for children under 13 years.
