The Nairn Ceilidh Group is back in action for another season

Commencing on Thursday June 12 there will be a warm welcome for ceilidh goers at the popular gatherings in the Royal british legion Hall in Cawdor Street.

The traditional music enthusiasts have raised tens of thousands of pounds for charity over more than three decades and the ceilidh have grown in popularity in recent years proving a big draw for both tourists and locals.

“They are great nights and we regularly attract audiences of up to 100 people from all over the world,” said Chairman Donald Wilson.
“The group has been on the go for over thirty years and we get ceilidh bands from Inverness, Ross-shire and Moray for the public dancing and we have an array of local musicians, pipers and dancers we can call on.
“Everyone plays for fun and it’s probably one of the best home spun ceilidhs in the Highlands.”

The group charges £3 admission to make it affordable for the elderly and young families and after covering expenses regularly disburses nearly £3000 to charities and local community organisations and projects.
One ceilidh date has had to be cancelled this year on July 24 due to the resurfacing of the hall dance floor.

Anyone wishing to reserve a table can contact Donald on 01667 453270 (evenings).
