Hello Everyone

Concert and Ceilidh at Haddenham
Saturday June 2nd

You are invited to join us for our Jubilee celebration ceilidh. But besides the Jubilee, we also have
something else to celebrate. For 40 years, HUGH RIPPON has been our resident caller and is the major reason Haddenham Ceilidhs have been so successful. This will be Hugh's last ceilidh as our regular caller. He has decided to retire!

Well not completely! With persuasion, he has agreed to come back for two more celebrations. In
December (Our 40th anniversary) and next April (Our 400th ceilidh), but this June will be the last on a
regular basis.

In the Main Hall, HUGH will ensure a smooth and enjoyable evening. You can dance the evening away to the wonderful, jazzy danceable music of STEAMCHICKEN.

The HAMMERSMITH MORRIS MEN, a side that HUGH formed well over 40 years ago are our dance display side for the evening.

In the Walter Rose Room, our concert venue, you can listen to MARTIN CARTHY, another stalwart of the folk scene, who I first saw in 1964. A fantastic singer and guitarist and a legend in his own right. No wonder he is called the Guv'nor.

Admission to the venue, only ?10, lets you dance or enjoy the concert or perhaps a bit of both! Just email or telephone by return and tickets will be held for you on the door.
