Does anyone know of any site which lists upcoming ceilidhs?   We often want to go dancing but finding info about them is very difficult.

For the area in and around Sussex, most public ceilidhs, barn dances etc. are part of the fairly comprehensive listings websites which I maintain at


http://whatson.brighton.co.uk/folk

and

As Baz has already said the single most comprehensive UK listing is Webfeet, http://www.webfeet.org/events.html.

The listing at Set and Turn Single http://www.setandturnsingle.org.uk/diary/diary.htm is also useful and lists some things that Webfeet doesn't.

English Dance & Song magazine (the EFDSS magazine) carries a listing of all the main regular ceilidh clubs, so you can get all their web addresses from there (I couldn't immediately find the listing on the EFDSS website, and also don't know whether there are entries in that list that aren't already covered by Webfeet).

ANNOUNCEs of one-off ceilidhs are regularly posted to the E-coliE-ceilidh mailing list, http://www.cix.co.uk/~net-services/ec/.

Many ceilidhs are also, of course, effectively private parties, and never get publicised outside their intended audience.

The website Are You Dancing? lists dances of all genres, including ceilidhs. However it relies on organisers listing them, whereas webfeet trawls the web for the information.

In Cheshire/South Manchester there are the Poynton Ceilidhs, which are now on a summer break and will be starting up again on 24 October

wheretogo.com seems to figure a lot on Webfeet also.

Webfeet has got to be the best starting point (after http://cresby.com of course)
Because Martin is proactive in collecting info and has a huge database of bands/venues. Indeed the only times it goes wrong are bands that are actually doing a concert or source info is wrong.

Ceilidh organisers - there is a thread here about a ne Yahoo discussion group.
