4th Annual(ish) Rippon Ceilidh Dance Fundraiser, Saturday 3rd October 2020

September 21, 2020

Revellers in Wanaka and beyond are gearing up to paint the town tartan at the third Rippon Ceilidh Dance Fundraiser, a feast of music, dancing and conviviality celebrating all things Caledonian.

The dress code is easy at the colourful event which will take place on Saturday the 3rd of October at the beautiful lakeside winery venue of The Rippon Hall. It will be in aid of both Te Kakano and Kahu Youth.

The Ceilidh (pron. kay-lee) is a cornerstone of Scottish culture, originating from the Gaelic word for a Gathering or Party. It's a fun filled night of wild dancing, good music and great company which will resonate with New Zealanders of Scots heritage as well as holding out a welcoming hand to everyone.

Up to 200 people are expected to take part in dances such as The Dashing White Sergeant, the Eightsome Reel, The Gay Gordons and Strip the Willow to the music of one of South Island's top celtic bands, Hair of the Dog. Wanaka’s own Robert Glen will open up the evening to belt out some acoustic tunes from 5:30 pm.

Kilts and tartan will be welcome, but are not compulsory, nor is experience. All ages and skill levels are most welcome.

Scottish-themed delicacies - including mince and tatties, cullen skink soup and haggis for the more adventurous - will be once again supplied by Wanaka catering specialists Morsel – The Honest Food Company.

Tickets available at Cork Bar, The Rippon Hall and online at Eventfinda.

So, come along, support local and have a good old time.
