Nairn Ceilidh Group - season 2017 starts on Thursday June 15th

Nairn Ceilidh Group have a big line up for their opening ceilidh of the new summer season which opens at the Nairn Community and Arts Centre this Thursday, June 15.

As well as dancing to the Nairn Ceilidh Band the audience are in for a treat with the delights of traditional singing duo Corralach, Eileen Solan and the wonderful harmonies of Sunntach.

As well as highland dancers and pipers it promises to be a packed evening of entertainment and the group are hoping for a big turn out on the opening night.

Chairman and MC of the ceilidhs Donald Wilson said: "Last year we had a great first season at the Community Centre. The ceilidhs are a great night out for families and we love to see visitors from all over the world joining in the fun. We keep admission charges down so it's an affordable night out and we hope to see you there."

Last year the group was recognised by Visit Nairn for their contribution to traditional entertainment for visitors to the town.

"It was totally unexpected and lovely to receive the award," said Donald.

"We have been indebted to tourist operators and Visit Nairn for their support over the years in selling their guests about the ceilidhs and we want to continue the ceilidhs which have been part of the summer scene now for more than 30 years."

Proceeds from the ceilidhs are distributed to local charities and organisations.
