Not sure whether to have a ceilidh at your wedding, party or function? Here are some Hilltop Ceilidh Band top tips and FAQ’s to help you make up your mind!

A ceilidh or barn dance is a fantastic,​ all inclusive​ way to get all your guests involved whatever the occasion! From weddings to corporate events everyone is bound to have
a fantastic time! You don’t even have to know the dances, all our line ups include a professional caller (dance teacher) as standard! All you need to do is turn up, dance
and have fun!

Imagine if you could book just one band to provide all the music and entertainment you need for the entire day…

With the Hilltop Ceilidh Band you can! We provide a number of different packages which can be tailored to suit your special day/event! From ceremony music as you walk down
the aisle, to background music to welcome your guests during the drinks reception, to a foot stomping ceilidh and a disco to round off the night – We can even provide a
microphone for the speeches, you’re all covered!

Do the band provide all the necessary equipment?
Yes! All you need to provide us with is a safe, standard plug socket!

How much space do you need? Have you got any tips on choosing a venue?
Yes! In fact we have a full article on just this… Take a read of ‘Tips to help you choose your venue

We are not sure what to have for our first dance, can we use a ceilidh dance?
That’s a fantastic idea! A ceilidh is a wonderful way of having your first dance! We are happy to take requests if there is a dance or tune you would particularly like or we are equally happy to work with you to find one to suit! It can be anything from a slow waltz to a mass dance! Or maybe even something that progresses between the two!

And if we decide to go for a more contemporary first dance?
Then we would be very happy for you to use our sound system for you to dance to! Just mention this when you send in your enquiry!

How expensive is this all going to be? How do we book?
As you can imagine our prices vary depending on what you choose for your day, however we do offer flat, all inclusive prices so there are no extra costs to worry about!
