Bristol Set Dancing Weekend 2019

A weekend of ceilis and workshops in Bristol.  Starts on Friday evening, 10th May, with a "short sets"  ceili with the Perfect Cure ceili band. Shorter sets have been chosen for this ceili to enable those who wish to, to dance with more partners. The ceili starts at 8 pm but the bar will be open from 7.30.

On Saturday 11th of May, Gerard Butler, a highly acclaimed dance teacher from Ireland, will run set dancing workshops from 10.30 am to 1 pm, and from 2-4.30 pm.

Lunches will be available in the hall from 1pm (ploughman's / baked potatoes) at low cost. These are provided on a non profit basis by local volunteers.

In the evening (8 pm start) there will be another ceili with the very popular and accomplished Perfect Cure Ceili Band. Sets will be called throughout the weekend.

Sunday starts a little later with a jive workshop by Gerard Butler from 11.30 am to 1 pm.

Lunches will again be available in the hall.

The final ceili runs on Sunday afternoon from 2- 5.30 pm.

Weekends tickets are £40, or you can pay separately for each part attended - workshops  £6 each and ceilis £10.
There will be raffles on Saturday and Sunday, all the proceeds of which will go to Parkinson's UK.
