Paddy’s Eve Céilí | IRC Fundraiser

16 November @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

10th March Update:
Hello! Given current prevailing conditions, I’m going to postpone this fundraiser. This is deeply disappointing to me for two reasons – firstly we were gonna be supporting a cause I strongly believe in, and secondly Paddy’s day is the perfect time to showcase an element of traditional Irish culture.

The event will go ahead when life returns to normal, hopefully sooner than November! In the meantime, please consider donating to the Irish Refugee Council directly at


‘Twas the night before Paddy’s, and all through the land, people were dancing, shur wasn’t it grand? Come one, come all to Crane Lane this Paddy’s Eve, to ring in the holiday with some traditional Irish dancing! Beginners are welcome, and no partner is required, full training and new friends will be provided on the evening!

Paddy’s day is our national holiday, and a time to celebrate the things that make us Irish. There are as many visions of Irish-ness as there are people on the island, but for me, a huge part of it is the craic, the ceol, and the cead míle fáilte. This year, we’ll be combining all three in a céilí fundraiser for the Irish Refugee Council, supporting their mission to promote and protect the lives of refugees in Ireland.

The evening’s festivities will follow this format: We’ll kick off at 6pm by learning the basic steps. Then, using those steps, we’ll weave increasingly complex group dances, until the band takes over at 20:30. There’s no more authentically traditional way to celebrate Paddy’s Day (unless you go to a pub instead of watching the parade). Our venue is the one and only Crane Lane Theatre, with a wide range of refreshments to revive the weary dancer!
