Berkshire Bedlam Morris Dancers are pleased to announce that on Saturday 29th November it will be time once again for their annual ceilidh with a difference - the Berkshire Bedlam Bunfight Ceilidh, this year featuring RANDOM with caller Nick Walden - and also featuring various other Bedlam style entertainments during the evening.


As usual it's at the California Ratepayers Hall, Finchampstead, Wokingham, RG40 3RL from 8.00 to 11.30 pm, and also as usual the evening is themed, this year's theme being 'Myths and Legends' - some people choose to come dressed in line with the theme, others don't - entirely optional!


Tickets paid for in advance are only £8 (£4 teens and below) - a snip bearing in mind the ticket price includes complimentary beer, wine and soft drinks - or £9 if held for you on the door. They are available from Malcolm Major, 20 Chestnut Avenue, Wokingham, Berks RG41 3HX, or contact by phone on 01189771952 or by e-mail to malcolmmajor_at_ntlworld_dot_com
