HERE’S an event that should get you in the festive mood.
Yorkshire based band Red Parrot will provide the music for dancing at a traditional Christmas ceilidh at the Old Bridge in Holmfirth on Saturday December 8.
The band play lively arrangements of dance tunes for social occasions throughout the north of England. The line-up includes melodeon, fiddle, bass, guitar, trombone and a caller.
They were a great hit at the last two folk festivals in Holmfirth.
A traditional ceilidh includes all sorts of musical entertainment and there will be tunes, a Mummers’ play and perhaps even some traditional pub carols.
A turkey sop supper will be available with a vegetarian option before the floor is cleared for dancing to finish the night.
The event is promoted by the Holmfirth Festival of Folk. Contact Cath Ingham or the Old Bridge Hotel for more details and tickets, 01484 687227.
