Ceilidh For Change
📅 Saturday 29 June 2019
New Earswick Folk Hall
Come together for a summer night of traditional ceilidh dancing in York with your friends and helping a great cause.

The goal of the 'Ceilidh for Change' is to raise money for Project Mongolia. Project Mongolia are an organisation who support the Mongolian charity, CYPPD, that work with disadvantaged children from the Ger and Ulaanbaatar districts in Mongolia. Every year, they send students out from the University of Edinburgh to summer camps that teach these children English and other life skills, allowing them a break away from the city. The money raised at the ceilidh will not go towards funding travel expenses for the English students or anything along those lines. Instead it will go towards the camps and will allow a child to go to camp who otherwise couldn't afford it.

A ceilidh is traditionally used to describe a Scottish or Irish social gathering, but in modern terms is more used to describe a group of people getting together to dance those good ol' traditional dances.
(If you're still a bit stuck on what on earth I'm talking about, see the following video for my favorite ceilidh dance: youtube.com/watch?v=TmTO0wUO-IM

Don't panic! You don't need to learn the steps in advance- there will be a caller who will talk you through all of the steps. And even then, it's much more fun when everyone is a confused together!

Music and instructions will be provided by the generous University of York Folk Society who've agreed to help us raise money this evening.

Doors will open at 7:30 and music will begin at 7:45.

Project Mongolia is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (Registered Charity Number: SC044058)
