Weddings


Ceilidhs are perfect for weddings as the evening can be tailored to bring together guests of all ages. With our caller to guide you, everyone can join in, even if you have never danced before.


We can play your first dance for you and co-ordinate your guests to form a guard of honour as you depart, and everything in between. Let us make your wedding reception a night to remember!

Fundraisers and Festive Occations

 

English Social Dances, aka barn dances, ceilidhs or country dances (no cowboy hats please, we're british!), are an excellent way to raise funds for villages, churches, clubs and other organisations. If you’re planning a Christmas, New Year or Burns Night party, you can't beat our ceilidhs/barn dances for having good fun and mixing people together.

 

If you are planning to include a raffle, we’re happy to run it for you on the day. And we can provide gender-neutral calling if that’s appropriate for your group.

 

Parties

 

Wondering who to book as your 18th, 21st, 30th, 40th, 50th, 60th party band? Frog on a Bike are great for parties. Absolutely no previous dancing experience is needed as the caller explains what you have to do. Making mistakes is part of the fun, so whether you're a keen dancer or a complete ceilidh novice, you will still have a brilliant time.

Corporate Events


Whether it's a Christmas party or an end of conference networking event, a ceilidh is an ideal way to get everybody involved and enjoying themselves. Give your staff and contacts a unique team building event.

Festivals

 

Frog on a Bike are forging quite a reputation on the Festival dance scene.

 

We have played ceilidhs at Rochester Sweeps, Whitby Folk Week, Wallingford Bunkfest, Ely Folk Festival and the prestigious Towersey Festival! Bookings for 2019 have included Todmorden Folk Festival (returning again in 2020) and Cambridge Folk Festival! With our foot stomping sound and exuberant energy, we are the perfect band for your festival, so book now to avoid dissapointment.
