UpRoar People’s Ceilidh


Sunday 5th February 2023

Brighton Unitarian Church, New Road, Brighton, BN1 1UF


A monthly folky fulcrum of creative celebration – part concert, part singing workshop, part ceilidh dance, part fundraiser and part community feast – it’s literally an all-singing-all-dancing community shindig!

Featuring special guests Naomi Bedford & Paul Simmonds

‘It’s like a festival in an afternoon!’ – UpRoar People’s Ceilidh Participant

Each month, UpRoar welcomes a different special guest from the wide and wonderful world of progressive folk, and invites you to a short matinee concert with our guest. This is followed by a singing workshop led by choral activist Kirsty Martin and then a few ceilidh dances – dancers of all abilities and penchants welcome! At break time we share a community feast together (please bring cake or another tasty offering if you can!) while learning about a cause / organisation that is close to our guest’s heart. We are often joined by our resident storyteller Jon Mason, who tells us a tantalising tale while we digest and then it’s time for Round 2 – giggin’ singin’ and jiggin’ together once more!

Kids under 8 come for FREE. Group discounts are available. Please email for further details.

Tickets for UpRoar on Sun 5 Feb 2023 with Naomi Bedford & Paul Simmonds can be found on Eventbrite! Here’s the link. See you there! x
