Ceilidh for Cats

15 April 2013

Music, dance, food and prizes ...

On Saturday 1st June there will be a Ceilidh at the Community Centre in Kirkham, with all profits going to the Preston Branch of Cats Protection. The admission price of £9 includes a hot pot supper, including vegetarian & vegan options, and there will be a raffle with lots of prizes. Local businesses, most of whom are independent traders, in Kirkham and Wesham have been very generous in donating prizes for the raffle.

There will, of course, be tea, coffee, soft drinks and cakes available, but as there isn’t a bar, if you wish to bring your own alcohol, please feel free.

The Music

The music and caller will be provided by Sid Calderbank and his band. Sid has over 30 years of entertainment experience having played at many clubs and art and folk festivals. He is a very patriotic Lancastrian, a member of the Lancashire Society and his web site describes him as ‘the mon for dialect and song’.

All in all you’re in for a good nights entertainment and fun and hopefully we will make a few bob for Cats Protection so that we can continue to help cats, kittens and people in Preston and surrounding areas.
