Spring Ceilidh

£20 | £15 Conc

Bring your dancing shoes to The Nest Collective’s spring celebration with the Ceilidh Liberation Front!

Join The Nest Collective to herald the arrival of spring with a rip-roaring, rambunctious ceilidh. Just days before the Spring Equinox signals the shift into the warmer part of the year, we’ll be celebrating the return of the sun the best way we know how – with music, merriment, and a good old knees-up!

Open to dancers of all abilities (no experience necessary!)

“Sweat-busting abandon, subverted dances and party tunes”

Time Out

“Taking the traditional ceilidh as its starting point, but ripping up the rule book, souping up the music and subverting the dance moves. No experience is necessary”


Dress code: Grand Junction has a strict no-heels policy for this event. Other than that there is no strict dress code. Come as splendid as you like! Fancy dressing up for the occasion? Wear colours associated with the Spring Equinox: pastel colours, green, yellow and white.

The Ceilidh Liberation Front is London’s most radical & colourful live band, subverting the lore of Ceilidh with their energetic folk dance regime. They breathe vigour and vitality into the traditional ceilidh, whilst honouring its roots and traditions. Join us this March for a celebration like no other!

Open to dancers of all abilities (no experience necessary!)

All are welcome at this event – groups, pairs or solo bookings.

Highlight was all of the dancing, but particularly stripping the willow with the lights on seeing all of those wonderful smiles! Also how much my face hurt from smiling all evening!!” – 2022 attendee
