Renowned ceilidh band to host New Year’s Eve party at stately historic house

ONE of the UK’s leading ceilidh bands is inviting people to dance the New Year in at a stately historic mansion.

Traditional Scottish trio Cragganmore Ceilidh Band, which includes renowned violinist Bob Cairns, will play at the Grade-II listed Netherby Hall, in Longtown, Cumbria, on New Year’s Eve.

Over the past three decades, the band has entertained crowds across the world and have grown a reputation for being one of the finest professional ceilidh bands in the UK.

Cragganmore Ceilidh Band will perform at Netherby Hall on New Year’s Eve.

Band member Bob said: “Cragganmore Ceilidh Band has played at venues across the world and we are really excited to play at such a grand venue as Netherby Hall’s Oak Hall. 

“It promises to be a great night of live music and entertainment, so come and join us and dance your way into 2024.”

Netherby Hall is an historic house steeped in history dating back to Roman times, and owners Gerald and Margo Smith have sensitively breathed life back into the mansion, gardens and surrounding buildings through a multi-million pound restoration project.

The hall is set on a private estate at Longtown, near Carlisle, and is surrounded by 36 acres of parkland and gardens. 

Kim Capstick, Netherby Hall’s Operations Manager, said: “The Oak Hall is a truly stunning venue for live music, and we’re particularly excited to be hosting Cragganmore Ceilidh Band for a night of Gay Gordons, barn dances and waltzes for a New Year’s Eve party which our guests will never forget.”

All dances will be led by Cragganmore Ceilidh Band’s experienced and encouraging caller.
