Burns Night Ceilidh

The Great Northern Ceilidh Band will once again return to host the celebrations of the life of Scottish poet Robert Burns, performing a range of lively dances. No previous ceilidh experience is necessary.

A dram of whiskey on arrival and a professional dance caller will set the mood in the De Grey Rooms, whose neo-classical ballroom is equipped with a sprung dance floor, used in its heyday by the Yorkshire Hussars and now restored by York Conservation Trust.
