Cambridge University Ceilidh Band


Perfect for May Balls, birthday parties, student events and weddings

The Cambridge University Ceilidh Band warmly welcomes all enquiries. We are available for hire all year round, and have experience playing at a wide variety of events.

Click here to see where we've been recently! Or, if you're ready, get in touch!

We predominantly take bookings within the Cambridgeshire area as we are based in the centre of Cambridge, but have been known to travel further afield. The Ceilidh Band is able to supply everything needed for a ceilidh: we bring along a large band, our own amplification equipment, and an experienced caller to instruct the dancers so that everyone can join in.

If this all sounds interesting, plenty more information is available via the Frequently Asked Questions page and the Standard Gig Policy - and of course by contacting us!

I just wanted to express my thanks for the music and dance instruction at my ceilidh yesterday! A particular thanks to the caller, who was so lovely and enthusiastic, really creating a welcoming atmosphere! (Even those of my friends who are the least inclined to dancing had a go!) I had so much fun, and will definitely recommend you to all my friends! Fiammetta, Birthday Celebration, January 2019
Thank you so much for making our 15th wedding anniversary ceilidh so brilliant! You were all fabulous!Clare, Wedding Anniversary, October 2018
The evening was a huge success. The band were brilliant (particularly liked the addition of a trombone!) and were extremely professional throughout the evening. The dances were awesome and were pitched brilliantly and we had huge fun in a beautiful hall. The caller managed gender neutral calling with ease – far better than any other caller we've ever had! Miriam, Charity Event, April 2015
All of the guests had a fantastic time and the band was brilliant. It has been a pleasure working with you and I very much appreciate all of your help and super level of organisation. Buffy, Charity Event, January 2015
