Ceilidhs are perfect for weddings as the evening can be tailored to bring together guests of all ages. With our caller to guide you, everyone can join in, even if you have never danced before.

We can play your first dance for you and co-ordinate your guests to form a guard of honour as you depart, and everything in between. Let us make your wedding reception a night to remember!

Barn Dances and Fundraisers

Ceilidhs, whether in halls or barns are an excellent way to raise funds for villages, churches, clubs and other organisations. If you’re planning a Christmas, New Year or Burns Night party, you can't beat our ceilidhs for having good fun and mixing people together.

If you are planning to include a raffle, we’re happy to run it for you on the day. And we can provide gender-neutral calling if that’s appropriate for your group.

Wondering who to book as your 18th, 21st, 30th, 40th, 50th, 60th party band? Frog on a Bike are great for parties. Absolutely no previous dancing experience is needed as the caller explains what you have to do. Making mistakes is part of the fun, so whether you're a keen dancer or a complete ceilidh novice, you will still have a brilliant time.

Corporate Events

Whether it's a Christmas party or an end of conference networking event, a ceilidh is an ideal way to get everybody involved and enjoying themselves. Give your staff and contacts a unique team building event.
