Our Folkworks Christmas Ceilidhs have become one of the traditions of the Christmas season at Sage Gateshead. Join in with fun dances, expertly explained by the caller, with music you just won’t want to sit down to from 422.
As well as our regular Ceilidh at 8pm on Sunday 23 December we also have two Family Ceilidhs at 2pm on Sunday 23 December and Monday 24 December that are suitable for all ages (in particular for children aged 5 and over and their families).
422 are a folk band and ceilidh band based in the North East of England. They play music from all over the world with a Northern English Bias. Since winning the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award in 1999, they have released 4 albums. They have a wealth of experience of playing for dancing, and know exactly how to give the tunes that extra ‘swing’ to make you want to dance.
“The best ceilidh band in the world.” – Alistair Anderson
We have something for everyone; families looking to get into the Christmas spirit with a spectacular show; friends and workmates looking to let their hair down and party the night away; and anyone looking to reflect on what Christmas means to them with a more traditional performance. Whatever...
