Back by popular demand - Beeston Oxjam Ceilidh

10/08/2016 - Yes! Saturday 24th September will again see Beeston jigging, reeling, shimmying and do-si-do-ing the night away in support of the annual Beeston Oxjam Takeover which is now firmly established in Beeston's cultural and community calendars.

Oxjam is a major fundraiser for Oxfam and also the UK's largest music festival.  Taking place mainly in the month of October,  it's made up of hundreds of events happening all around the country, all organised by volunteers. Beeston is firmly on the Oxjam map having raised £17,050 last year, more than any other Takeover in the UK.

Since Beeston embarked on their fantastic Oxjam journey in 2011, the Beeston Ceilidh Collective  has kickstarted the festival with  foot stamping, toe tapping  music. And with the humour and patience of Steve Benford to guide you through the dances, it doesn't matter if you don't know what to do; in fact it's probably even more fun if you don't!

This year's ceilidh follows on from other Oxjam events (the Oxjam Quiz, Oxjam Unplugged, and Oxjam Introducing) and  will be a great warm up for the main Takeover (October 15th  2016).

So where is this great event happening?
