3rd August 2011 LOTS OF LAUGHS AT THE BROOME FARM CEILIDH

After what turned out to be a stressful week it was so good to get out to Broome Farm on Saturday evening to cover the charity Ceilidh taking place there. These events are always a lot of fun and I decided to make a night of it and camped in the Old Orchard.

The music was provided by the excellent Ceilidh band 'Skirrid' who expertly called the moves and in no time at all had the dance floor packed with people, all keen to join in the dances. Even I got roped into a dance or two once I had put the camera to bed and I really had a great time. Shrieks of laughter ran through the barn as some of the dancers got their moves confused but under the guidance of the caller, it wasn't long before they all got the hang of things. Hunger and thirst were cured by some of the fantastic food, cider and perry that were available throughout the event and a great night was had by all.

The Ceilidh was held to raise funds for one of Broome Farm and Ross Cider & Perry Co.'s three chosen charities for this year which are: The Peterstow Ladies Race for Life Challenge, Tamwen and a Bee Keeping charity which encourages people in poorer countries to use bees as a means of income. Many charities have benefited greatly thanks to events held up at the farm.

I am currently looking forward to the Broome Farm Cider Festival which will take place on 2nd, 3rd and 4th September. For further information on this wonderful annual event, please see the What's On? page of Wyenot.com.


Excellent Ceilidh band 'Skirrid' call the moves.

The evening starts off with a few 'easy' ones.

I think they are beginning to get the hang of this now.

A Broome Farm Ceilidh is a great night out for meeting friends, new and old ones.

More and more people take to the floor.

Before too long, the floor is packed with people enjoying the fun.
