The Ceilidh Club Blog is here to bring you interesting things to do in London as well as highlighting small Scottish companies and the odd poem as well as other stuff you might find interesting. All you need do is stop by from time to time to find out what’s new. 

London is a great city and we love the multi cultural feeling. We’re lucky at the Ceilidh Club to have access to so many wonderful people from all over the world, they bring their energy and their culture to our night and put their own spin to our dances. We remember well the Lithuanian Folk Dance group that came along and demonstrated their stuff at half time. So we like to highlight in this Blog some of the wonderful things to do in London – cultural highlights, sporting events etc.

There’s lots of Scottish things to do in London too – from Gaelic choirs to Shinty, from whisky tasting to haggis eating.  If you want to know where to hire a kilt then check out our blog post on it. Are you interested in organising an Office Night Out or a Charity Ceilidh then you’ll find posts about that as well. We try to answer as many of your regular questions as we can via our blog posts or through the usual array of social media. 

We like to bring small Scottish companies to your attention – there is a wealth of high quality businesses in Scotland and we like to show case them here. Scotland produces 70% of the UK’s gin. That’s a lot of G and T’s. Scotland has also joined in the UK (worldwide?) boom in craft beer production and there are now over 30 beer producers in and around Edinburgh alone, with new ones popping up all the time.  

So please feel free to delve into the Ceilidh Club blog when you have the time. If there is anything that you would like us to cover then let me know and we’ll see what we can do. We try to keep it short, snappy and sweet. Because let’s face – you’re worth it.

Halloween – Robert Burns

By |October 31st, 2018|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , |

Halloween - Robert Burns - Best read aloud Upon that night, when fairies light On Cassilis Downans dance, Or owre the lays, in splendid blaze, On sprightly coursers prance; Or for Colean the rout is ta'en, Beneath the moon's pale beams; There, up the Cove,to stray an' rove, Amang the rocks and streams To sport [...]

Beer and Gin Production in Scotland

By |October 18th, 2018|Categories: food and drink|

Beer and Gin production in Scotland is booming - we are in a golden age of premium drinks. Anyone who grew up before 2000 will remember the turgid, chemical filled beer we 'forced' ourselves to drink. Mass wine sales consisted of the the rubbish that other countries didn't want and because we couldn't get anything [...]
