Saturday 25th February 7pm Gene Kelly Ceilidh +
It is impossible to watch a Gene Kelly film without wanting to make your own humble attempts at poetry in motion. We can't promise any poetry but there will be energetic fun for all in this unique evening that forms part of our special centenary tribute to Gene Kelly. Join us for a wee dram followed by a screening of the MGM musical classic Brigadoon at St Andrews in the Square. Food is then served to provide you with the sustenance to take to the dance floor for a good, old-fashioned, rip-roaring ceilidh complete with a live ceilidh band and a caller to help you master any of the trickier moves.
£15 full price, £12 concession - price includes film, ceilidh and hot food
