Scottish-Syrian Ceilidh


Now that you’ve learned ceilidh dancing at last month’s Burns Supper and Ceilidh, why not come along and join in the fun at the Scottish-Syrian Ceilidh, held in support of Stirling Citizens for Sanctuary and Better Life 4 Syrian Children!

There are still tickets available for the event, which will be held between 6-10pm on Friday 3rd March 2017 at Victoria Halls, Dunblane. Tickets are by donation, and can be purchased in advance from Smallprint, Beech Road, Dunblane. You can also reserve tickets for pick up at the door on arrival by emailing, and you can make your donation then.

As well as raising funds, this is a golden opportunity to welcome Syrian friends in our area to their new home and appreciate live Scottish and Syrian music, song and dancing. Performers include young local instrumentalists, guitarist Ayman Jarjour, local folk singers, some of our Syrian friends, and a local ceilidh band. Supper will be provided, thanks to local caterers and friends. 

All proceeds will go to Stirling Citizens for Sanctuary and Better Life 4 Syrian Children.

We hope to see you there!

St. Andrew’s Ceilidh

This year’s St. Andrew’s Night Ceilidh to raise funds for the Syrian Children’s Creche was a terrific success with a record attendance.


All the traditional elements were there – the piper, stovies, music & singing, a raffle, ceilidh dancing – and the young ones even did the hokey cokey .


A big thank you to everyone who contributed to the event’s success.

Getting in Tune

At the ceilidh tomorrow evening, there will be delicious stovies, lively ceilidh dancing and good music – bagpipes, violins, the haunting erhu and, of course, singing. In preparation, some of us had a go today at getting our tongues around the dialect words and the stirring melodies of Scots Wha Hae and Auld Lang Syne.
