Evening Ceilidh

 If you are joining us for the evening, please aim to arrive by 7:15pm.  We will be cutting the cake at 7:30pm, with dancing immediately afterwards.

If you would like to arrive early you are welcome to wander around the gardens - please bring your invitation to avoid paying at the ticket office.


Renowned local ceilidh band "Scallywag" will be playing for us throughout the evening.  Please wear suitable clothing and footwear for dancing - ceilidh dancing is very energetic! 

Scallywag are experienced with playing for weddings: no prior ceilidh or dancing experience is needed or expected!  A ceilidh is like a barn dance - there will be a caller to let you know what to do when, and plenty of people to push you (gently) in the right direction if you get lost...


A finger buffet will be provided part-way through the evening, and a cash bar will be available.  As an indication of prices, house wine will be around £16.00 per bottle, lager £3.20, cider £3.60, beer £3.40.  Please note that there are no cash machines near the church or Hestercombe, although there are several around M5 junction 25, including at the Murco petrol station.


At the end of the evening we wil be providing minibus transport, so please feel free to leave your cars at home, at the church, or at Hestercombe overnight and join us for a drink or two (please see transport page).  The evening should finish around 11:30-12:00.
