Received this from John re. the ceilidh on the 16th July:

“The evening programme starts at 7:30 pm, so please can band members arrive before then – preferably shortly after 7pm.  I have arranged for a room where instruments and their cases can be stored during the evening.

The event takes place at the Lothersdale Hotel.  There is parking opposite the hotel.

The days events are approximate (i.e. TBA):

19:00-19:30 – everyone arrives and instruments are stored safely away

19:30-20:15 – Lancaster & District Male Voice Choir entertainment

20:15 – 20:30 – Ceilidh Band sets up

20:30 – 21:00 – Ceilidh until the food arrives

21:00-21:30 – Serving of light snacks

21:30-22:20 – Ceilidh continues

22:00 onwards – whatever happens e.g. music sessions or switch over to canned music.

There will be a free bar for wine, beer and soft drinks from 19:00 to 21:00 (or until the kitty runs out!)

I’m expecting around 80 people in all – ranging in age from 90+ to 2yrs old.
