Have your say

A CELTIC tradition is coming to Rowlands Castle.

Villagers have organised a ceilidh, which is traditionally a Gaelic social gathering involving folk music, dancing and the recital of tales and poems.

The autumn-themed ceilidh is being held at St John’s Church, in Redhill Road, on Saturday, October 13.

Performing will be the six-strong folk band Ballyhooley, who are from Petersfield.

Local people are being asked if they would like to contribute any of their own literary pieces.

The band will play from 7pm to 8pm. After this there will be a venison and turkey supper.

There will also be a vegetarian option.

Tickets are now available from the church office and the village hardware shop, priced at £12.

Children aged under 11 go free and tickets for those between 11 and 16 are £6.

The event is open to all.
