ED2012 Physical Review: Ceilidhs In Lauriston Hall (Edinburgh Ceilidhs)

By | Published on Tuesday 21 August 2012

I’ve attended a few ceilidhs as a drifter living in Edinburgh, and every time they surprise me with something new. The atmosphere at Lauriston Hall is friendly, welcoming and cosy, hidden in a little lane next to the Sacred Heart. The old gentlemen, the band and the leading dancers are full of enthusiasm and fun and show you all about the nation’s spirit with their kilts, steady movements and strong lifting – they are the best ceilidh partners I’ve encountered. Ceilidhs are a beautiful demonstration of human relationships – the tension, the power dynamic, and the freedom of choice. In summary, if you wish to experience a true taste of Scotland, but sober, this is your choice.

Lauriston Hall, 3-25 Aug (not 5, 12, 19), 9.00pm.
