Celebrate our first outing for 2017 when Sydenham Arts marks the birthday of Robert Burns AND his connections to Jamaica in our own inimitable, cosmopolitan style. We are bringing our Jah Burns reggae ceilidh to the Sydenham Centre on Friday 27th January.
The evening kicks off at 7pm with a fusion flava supper, celebrating Scottish and Caribbean cuisine. While you are tucking in to the Patties and Tatties (and the jerk chicken and haggis) we have music and poetry to entertain you – Alain English, Cassie Mathews, Atlanta, Isabel White – more names being added.
At 8pm we push back the tables for two 40 minute sets of highland jigs, brought to you by Step Lively Barn Dance and Ceilidh interspersed with two DJ sets of old school ska and reggae. The evening’s fun finishes at 11 pm. Tickets are £15 in advance for buffet supper and dancing, £17 on the door – we cannot guarantee food for late bookers, so please book early. If you require a vegetarian option please let us know when you book.
There will also be a fully licensed bar.
If you can volunteer for the event you get FREE ENTRY (and a pink Sydenham Arts t-shirt)! Your help setting up, with the box office, running the bar, stewarding and packing up at the end of the night would be much appreciated!
