CarFest North for Children In Need

Just got back from Carfest.

In one word – BRILLIANT – everyone there seemed to enjoy it, over the weekend it was buzzing. Some people who came on Sat to see the morris dancing and join the Ceilidh came back on the Sunday again to do it all over again – mad.

Everyone seemed to enjoy it and all I spoke to during and after said it was great and they enjoyed it more than they thought.

The music & musicians were very good, lots of clapping and feet tapping around the tent I saw (which is hard on grass), and Steve the caller was great.

Long day – but totally enjoyable  - Thanks.

(Ed: It is not often that the band plays for a complete set of Wallys - see if you can spot them in the pictures!!!)

St. Endellion Summer Music Festival

"An evening full of barnstorming fun. Devilish dancing, magnificent music, and captivating calling made for marvellous time for everyone."
"A lively, fun and action packed evening from this amazing band. They put together an evening that suited all ages and fitness levels. I'd definitely go to one of their evenings again"
"A talented and assured band and a delightful evening that was enjoyed by all ages. No dancing experience necessary!"

Northern Lights Charity Ceilidh

Just to say thank you to the band and Steve (caller) for your support last night.

Everyone enjoyed themselves and Steve certainly had no problems keeping the floor full.

Well done to you all and many thanks once again.


(Over £1200 was raised for the charity that evening)

Wirral Arts Festival Ceilidh

What an absolutely fabulous evening at the Shave the Donkey ceilidh!

 I think I danced every single dance!  It was uplifting and made me want to play melodeon all night. .

Thank you all for a magical evening

Love Charlotte xx


Heswall Parish Day

Shave The Donkey made the night extra special as the live music and caller got it just right in terms of speed and complexity!

Your music filled the barn , over the excited whoops of the many dancers, with joyful rhythmic tunes and enhanced the whole spirit of the wonderful evening!

So many friends commented on what a great night it had been and the level of involvement in every dance said it all!!

You all contributed a great deal to the success of the night! It made a lovely ending to a parish get together! !


Nicola & Richard's Wedding

Thanks very much for playing at our wedding on the 5th September.

You were really great and we had a lot of fun dancing to your music.

A lot of people commented to us about how much they enjoyed it, and many people who had never been to a ceilidh before said it was fun.

Thanks so much!
