Raise a glass to the festive season at the Forest Arts Winter Cèilidh on Friday 8 December!

Join us for a magical evening with friends, family and loved ones, where you will immerse yourself in a relaxed atmosphere filled with dancing and live music, with delicious food and delightful drinks available to order throughout the evening. 

This isn't your typical Forest event – we have transformed our venue to create a special winter celebration! Picture extra tables and chairs throughout the venue with enchanting decor, allowing you to effortlessly flow throughout the space. Our theatre will be open for your enjoyment, whether you prefer to sit back and watch the performance or join in with a traditional Cèilidh dance or two brought to you by Monkey See Monkey Do. 


Monkey See Monkey Do:  

Combining vocals with fiddle, guitar, bodhràn, clarinet and the occasional squeeze of melodeon, Monkey See Monkey Do take traditional and modern material and make it their own, coining the term ‘folk-ish’ to describe their upbeat sound. Described as “thoroughly enjoyable” (Songlines) and “a genuine delight” (FATEA), Monkey See Monkey Do have gone on to perform their “high-energy” set at venues and festivals across the South of England. 


As for libations, we've gone all out for this special night. Head to the bar to see what special options we have got for you! Don’t forget we also have tea and coffee on offer too! 

Let's not forget about the food! Crafted by the talented Tucky Chef, featuring locally sourced ingredients. Expect mouthwatering options like hog roast baps, succulent steak baguettes, and delicious veggie burgers. Available for you to order from throughout the night, starting at £6. 

Date: Friday 8 December 

Time: 7pm – 11pm
