Cèilidh

A Cèilidh is held on the Friday night before the Festival.

Friday 27th March 2020

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

It derives from the Gaelic word meaning a visit and originally meant just that (and still does in Gaelic). It can also mean a house party, a concert or more usually an evening of informal Scottish tradition dancing to informal music. Ceilidhs in the highlands tend to be concerts. Ceilidhs are extremely popular indeed with young people and often attract from a few dozen people to several hundred.

The Ringwood Highland Games and Celtic Festival is pleased to present this concert to be held at 7:00pm on the Friday night, March 27th 2020, before our annual gathering on the Sunday, This event is intended to be a Welcome Party for all.
