Thanks to all who came on the 12th May. What a lovely time we all had!
We're starting again in October. Save these dates!
This May Family Ceilidh Oxford will have been going for a year! Come and celebrate with us at our final ceilidh of the season before we start up again in October.
Our dances attract all ages. The atmosphere is one of inclusion and enjoyment, no experience is necessary; join in or sit out whenever you like.
Our lovely caller Martha will give you the moves and our fantastic live folk band provides the energy and drive.

"We had a really fun afternoon - the caller was great at explaining the dances so everyone could get them. It was really good physical exercise too, and a great way to get my 7-year-old dancing, which he's never done before."
"A fabulously fun experience in a beautiful park. The dances were explained really clearly so that we could all join in. Great music from the band and a really friendly atmosphere. Thanks for a great time."
"What a wonderful family ceilidh!!! It was perfectly pitched so all the family could join in including the children. We all had a blast. I've never seen my 8 year old daughter join in for so long at a ceilidh before. Other family ceilidhs she and her friends found too hard and gave up after a couple of dances. But here, the caller made it easy for young children (and us adults!) to follow and keep joining in.
Despite the alluring playgrounds surrounding the building and sunny skies, the children and families kept returning after each break. This surprised me, while I waited all hot and sweaty in the heat.
There were so many smiling faces of all ages and genders, even my 'non dancing' husband joined in. Highly recommend it. Would be such a gift to the community if it could continue on a regular basis."
