ceilidh  {Scots gaelic, "Kay-Lee" , kʲʰeːli} 

A community gathering and sharing event, often accompanied by music, dancing and storytelling

Put your dancing shoes on and dance the night away at our ceilidh, brought to you by the brilliant Science Ceilidh Band.

The Science Ceilidh Band is formed from the team of Lewis Hou (fiddle, calling), Lewis Williamson (fiddle), Gary Rafferty (guitar) and Helen Le-Mar (flute, calling). 

The band have played their high energy take on traditional Scottish music around Europe, incorporating elements from continental balfolk, quebecois and nordic traditions with a cheeky dash of techno and geek culture for good measure into their ceilidhs for festivals, events, weddings and conferences. Highlights have included TEDxGlasgow, the Royal Society, Physiological Society Conference, Big Bang Bash at National Museum Scotland, Green Man Festival (Einstein's Garden), headlining Solarsphere in Wales, Mugstock Festival and weddings in Germany, Switzerland, Sweden and Ireland. 

P. S. We love a good excuse to dress up so fancy dress/cosplay is encouraged!
