To mark World Cancer Day, and to raise funds for the Luxembourg Cancer Foundation, a Scottish/Irish Cèilidh is being organised on Saturday 3 February 2018 from 19:00 at the Centre Cultural Altrimenti (5 Avenue Marie-Therese, Luxembourg-ville).

This event was first held in Luxembourg last year, with tickets selling out long before the event itself. This year the traditional Irish band Kitchen Quartet will again provide the music, with a dance caller organising those on the dance floor who may not know the various dances.

What's a Ceilidh?

A cèilidh (Scottish Gaelic spelling) or cèilí (Irish Gaelic spelling) is a traditional Scottish or Irish social gathering, involving music, dance and merriment. You do not have to dance, but if you are keen to try and do not know how, the experts there on the evening will help you.

A cash bar will be in operation. All money raised will be donated to the Cancer Foundation.

Tickets cost €12; to attend, see (follow link to "Dance Against Cancer Ceilidh") to (click on "Ceilidh", then on "reserve a ticket"). Tickets can be collected at the door upon payment (in cash).
