Each year we hold a traditional Céilidh (pronounced 'Kaylee') with all profits going to St. Luke's Hospice, Basildon.


This is a traditional Scottish social gathering, which usually involves playing Gaelic folk music and dancing. It originated in Scotland but is now common throughout Scottish gatherings.   Before discos and nightclubs, there were Céilidhs in most town and village halls on Friday or Saturday nights; they are still common today.


The term is derived from Old Irish  meaning "companion".

We follow tradition with a programme of easy Scottish country and social dancing interspersed with various contributions from volunteers who contribute instrumental and singing performances, etc., but the Gaelic Folk music is no longer played at our event.

Bring a plate of food to share, drinks and money for the raffle.   No Bar this year..
