We believe starting your ceilidh / barndance with a bang is vital. If guests enjoy the first dance then they’re more likely to keep coming back for more so the first choice is key. As a ceilidh opener, we love Virginia Reel. It’s quick to teach and set up so there’s not much waiting around
Ceilidh Tree have provided ceilidhs for the BBC, Royal Opera House, BMW and London Zoo. Our work ceilidhs are perfect for conferences, icebreakers and team building events. Ceilidh virgins? Fear not! Our caller makes sure everyone’s having a great time and our ceilidh, DJ, disco, lighting and piper packages make planning super easy.
