Organisation

Ceilidh Collective

Details
The ceilidh collective works only by the dedicated efforts of a strong team of volunteers. We set up the hall, manage the decorations, run the bar and refreshments, and complete the tidy up and recycling.

In exchange for about 4 hours on the night we offer a free hot shared vegetarian meal, free entry to the ceilidh and one drink from the bar. There are roughly 14 volunteer positions available per ceilidh and our current volunteer co-ordinator is Robin. To get involved just fill in the form below and he'll send you the link to our volunteer questionnaire...

Please note we get a high demand to volunteer at the ceilidhs so there is no guarantee we'll be able to give you a space. We have 2-4 places available each ceilidh for new volunteers. Do fill this in NOW if you're able, so it doesn't get forgotten. We'd love to have you along...
