Grassington Festival is holding a ceilidh on Saturday June 12, giving everyone an opportunity to kick up their heels to some live music.

The Monster Ceilidh Band, which will provide the music is one of the best-known ceilidh bands in the UK and plays at large festivals and events all over the world.

Claire Gains, festival chairman, said: “The best thing about a ceilidh is you don’t even have to know the dances as the band has a ‘caller’ who guides everyone through the steps, so anyone can join in.”

To encourage families along, the festival is introducing a “children go free” offer.
