Rant July - the ceilidh with a fringe on top (yeeha)

It's our third monthly Rant - and since it happens to be on 4th July this time, we'll be trying our hands (and feet!) at a few American dances. Not exclusively though - we'll still have plenty of the usual Irish, Scottish and other ceilidh favourites for you to Rant to. So whether you like Dashing your Willow or Stripping your Sergeant (we may have got those mixed up), there'll be plenty fun for all. 

We hold a RANT on the first Friday of every month in the beautiful One Church in central Brighton. Doors open 7.45pm and our main session is 8pm - 11pm. Raucous ceilidh dancing, live band and caller, plus helpful staff serving awesome ale. (There's a 20-minute break halfway through to allow the band some respite and refreshment.) 

Rant is perfect for those who're new to this type of dancing, as well as those who've done it a hundred times before. 

Tickets are £6 in advance via Paypal from this site - this will ensure you have a ticket reserved. Tickets are also available on the door, but you'll have to get there early to be sure to get in. Suitable for age 15+

So jus' you hurry along now an' book that ticket - ol' Uncle Paul's been dyin' t' play for ya on his gee-tar!

    Thanks everyone for a brilliant night. It amazes us each Rant just how much of a fun crowd you really are. So much foot stomping fun, we're still reeling from it! :)

      Really sorry you missed it. You'll have to do extra stomping in August to make up for it :)

    We're trying to make sure all drinks are super chilled and opening all doors and windows to keep cool. Also, there will definitely be a lot of stripping!

    How many can the hall hold? Is there a limit on numbers?

    1 · June 30

    • william s.

      We've had up to about 95 but that gets too packed for wilder dancing. An ideal number given the size of the floor is 70-80, that right Louise?

      1 · June 30

    • Louise W.

      Hey, Yup, that's right indeed :) People do seem to enjoy the more crowded dancing too, but you can really throw your partner around when there's a few less!

      Really great to hear from you…and thanks for bringing this to my attention. I've updated the event. So if you now change your reply to 'not going' then back to 'going', you should see the paypal section there. Do let me know how you get on. Lou x
