After the success of the last years event. Ire-ish are putting together another community cèilidh event teaming up with the Sutton Coldfield Town Hall. This year will be a bigger scale event with the same mighty craic as last time. The event will be divided into two separate times with a children ceilidh event in the day and a full live gig and ceilidh dance in the evening. The event will be running 4-6pm and 7-10pm. All timings will be released with the new flyer.
