Tim & Gail, 50th Party, Wycombe, March 2020

“Ceilicious provided a fun, lively and engaging evening. We had a mix of experienced ceilidh dancers and complete beginners - Ceilicious made it a fantastic evening for everyone!”

Scott, Private Event, Swindon, February 2020

“A massive thank you to you and your band for performing at our Burns night on Saturday. Our guests had a lovely time and we have had some good feedback. I hope you got packed up and home ok! Thanks again!”

Louise, Charity Event, Ascot, February 2020

“The band were really good and the caller was excellent with our wide range of ages - she included everyone and helped the children to be able to do the dances.”

Tamsyn, Private Event, Reading, January 2020

“Great! They arrived in good time to set up and played promptly at the time they were supposed to. We were actually a bit behind schedule as our caterer was late but they were happy to play background music until we were ready. None of us had ever done anything like it before but everyone got involved and the direction given was perfect - everyone loved it!”

Rebecca, Private Event, Reading, January 2020
