Picnic Box £9.50 per person

If you’ve been to one of our Rant Ceilidhs in the past, you’ll know just how much fun it’s possible to have while galloping across the floor with strangers. High energy, ridiculously awesome and usually ending with everyone out of breath and laughing.

Our big New Year’s Eve Celebration Ceilidh is set to go even further along the highway of hilarity as we have our special guests ‘The Captain’s Beard’ on board (apologies for the puns!).

We’ll have fabulous music from The Brighton Ceilidh Collective for dancing and we’ll also have a piratical interlude during the evening when Captain Clements and his heinous crew from The Captain’s Beard will take over. They’ll entertain you with bawdy drinking songs, sea shanties that’ll make you blush and their own special brand of banter and indecent striped leggings!

Surely there’s no better way to see in the New Year than this.
