Introducing Cartwheel Ceilidh




With driving rhythms and solid musicianship, Cartwheel Ceilidh (Ed. Pronounce it ‘kay-leeee’ y’all!!) is a force to be reckoned with.  Delivering the glorious traditional tunes of the British Isles, our music is guaranteed to bring friends and strangers together and inspire even the most unwilling feet to dance. With a friendly caller always on hand to help, you’ll be up dancing to jigs and reels, Stripping the Willow and marching the Gay Gordons in no time!


"Cartwheel Ceilidh. Fun, professional, exhilarating, great value"

Flexible line up to suit venue and budget; whether it’s a village hall needing just a couple of musicians, or a larger party where the whole band would be more suitable. We are fully insured. We supply a full PA system + ambient lighting and all our equipment is PAT tested. Booking is secured by signed contract.

We provide Ceilidhs for many weddings - particularly during the popular summer months. We understand that this is one of the most important events of your life. We know how important it is to you that the day runs smoothly. We also know that there's alot to fit into a day and things need to be flexible. We make sure everybody knows the order of events for the evening and take any of the worry out of your hands. We simply and reliably turn up and do the job.


Other Celebrations

There are so many.  We all have significant events and anniversaries in our lives: 21st's, 30th’s, 40th's, 50th's………90th's.   Silver wedding anniversaries, Golden, Retirement to name but a few.  A large number of our bookings are made up of these types of celebrations and a Ceilidh is an ideal activity to incorporate into all of these. 



We've done alot of work in schools providing workshops for children of all ages as well as evening social Ceilidhs for children, parents and families. The educational benefits of a Cartwheel Ceilidh Dance workshop are many-fold.  It improves co-ordination, communication and fitness.  It encourages creativity and self-expression.  It brings laughter and friendship......more



We’re connected.   If we’re not available for a date we’ll try to find you a band that is.  We know many good, tried and tested bands in the area. We'll deal with all the bookings and logistics, give you the best advice and ensure that everything is setup for your important event. We take a commission but we have agreed rates with the bands we work with so you'll be paying a fair fee.
