Pictures from Halloween Ceili

A great night of set dancing with fantastic tunes from The Perfect Cure and lovely atmosphere.
Many thanks to Bruce for the lighting, Finn for being on the door and doing the raffle which raised £91.00 for the Bristol branch of Parkinson's UK. And thanks to everyone who took part and made it another great evening.

It was clear that a lot of people put a lot of thought and effort into their fancy dress costumes, it was not an easy job to pick a winner. Well done Ann!

Hope the photos captured some of the flavour of the night.

Let me know if you would like a print of any photo.
