Ceili (‘Ceilidh’ or ‘Barn Dance’)

The Brim specialise in providing an upbeat Ceili (Ceilidh or Barn Dance) for weddings, birthdays, fund raisers and other events however big or small. Although we are based in Cornwall, we also cover Devon and are happy to come further afield if required. Our repertoire of ceilidh dances covers dances from, but not limited to, Scotland, Ireland and Cornwall such as Virginia Reel, The Siege of Ennis and Dashing White Sergeant etc etc.

For more information please contact us through the ‘book us‘ page.

So, why a ceili?’

‘Ceilis’ or ‘Barn dances’ are the perfect ice breaker at any event and are a very easy and fun way to interact and socialise with others. They are suitable for any age and dancing experience is not necessary (They are also a very good form of exercise!). For those that have never heard of them or experienced one before usually come away from a ceili with a big smile on their face wanting more!

‘The Brim’ comes with its very own highly experienced caller (Julian Whiting) who is able to teach and lead people through the dances whatever your age or ability.


“We just thought we’d drop you an email to say thank you to the brim for helping make our wedding such a success. The performance you gave us was exactly what we wanted and you certainly got everyone up and dancing! We have had no end of compliments from our guests saying how fantastic the ceilidh was and we would not hesitate to recommend you to others. Hopefully we can think up another excuse to have a ceilidh very soon” – (Wedding ceili, Crowlas, Cornwall)
