As you may know we are hoping to get an energetic ceilidh club going in Horsham. It will not seek to compete with the hugely successful Godalming GBH and Haywards Heath Meltdown Ceilidhs but we should like to build a ceilidh crowd in Horsham and so expand the opportunities for dancing.
In order to provide that extra opportunity we are scheduling our ceilidhs for Fridays (the first Friday in the month) rather than Saturdays.
Bob already runs a successful folk dance club in Crawley on alternate Tuesdays and there are similar clubs in Horsham on some Saturdays and Mannings Heath on 2nd Wednesdays but we hope that our new venture will be for more energetic dancing and will grow to support live bands.
If you would like to enjoy a lively ceilidh in Horsham once a month then come along to the first night of the Mainly Ceilidh Dance Club at the Tythe Barn, Pondtail Road RH12 5EZ. It is near the junction with Haybarn Drive.
The club will begin with a scratch band so musicians will get free entry. But recorded music will also be used so that musicians will get a chance to dance too. We hope, as the club grows, to be able to employ local bands so, by helping get the club started, musicians will be creating a new employment opportunity.
As experienced dancers we recognise that we benefit from expanding the number of dancers so we will encourage dancers to change partners often so that new dancers can learn from the more experienced.
If you would like
Wear comfortable shoes and bring something to drink.
We look forward to seeing you.
John Byng & Bob Weddell
