Kent and Canterbury ceilidh band
available for weddings and events


Licence to Ceilidh are often spotted at events in Canterbury and across the whole of Kent performing our unique style of Scottish Ceilidh to audiences of all kinds.

We combine traditional ceilidh dances and tunes with a funky, contemporary rhythm section that’s perfect for any type of function.

…and with an expert caller talking everyone through the steps, we’ll have all your guests up on dance floor reeling away in no time!

So if you’re looking for a professional band for your Wedding, Student Night, Corporate Dinner or Birthday Party then watch our videos and have a look at what line up options we can provide.

What Is A Ceilidh?

The modern meaning of Ceilidh, Ceili, or Barn Dance is simply an evening of fun, guided dancing to a live band with experienced caller talking you through all the moves! Which is exactly what you get with Licence to Ceilidh.

It’s the perfect Ice Breaker, we perform all of the dances anyone with experience will know and remember, but are still easy enough to teach to complete beginners! So anyone can take part, whether young, old, or those of us with two left feet.

“Hi Ali, We just wanted to drop you a quick line to say thank you SO much for making our wedding reception so brilliant! You guys were fantastic and everyone loved the ceilidh. It was great to see so many people dancing together who had never met before and to see so many of our friends who avoid a dance floor enjoying themselves. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in Gozo. Wishing you well with all your endeavours.”
