Ceilidhs at the 2017 festival:

Friday night - We're delighted to have The Valiant Dance Band for this years opening night ceilidh. 10pm till midnight (straight after the opening concert). We're also pleased to confirm that Barry Goodman will be calling for the evening.

Saturday night - As a celebration of the 40th festival and in memory of Bob Cann the festival's founder, The Dartmoor Pixie Band will be playing for the Saturday evening ceilidh this year. The last time being the 30th festival back in 2007. Sarah Bazeley will be guiding you through the dances and will have you all leaping about like Pixies! We're also pleased to announce that our good friend Baz Parkes will be sharing the calling with Sarah. 

To celebrate 40 years of the Festival the Saturday Evening Ceilidh was Ruby Red Themed ! The Pixie Band and many of the dancers enjoyed dressing up in anything red that they could get their hands on, wigs, glasses, ridiculous footwear etc. Such fun!
