Xmas Social and Ceilidh

A chance for a xmas get-together at Glasgow's Avant Garde where, if you wish to partake, you can also join in their Saturday night Ceilidh. The venue have kindly set aside a private room for us, meaning we can all be together, space and numbers permitting.

Please note, this is intended to be a relaxed/informal invitation and evening. As such, you can come along just for a xmas chat and drink and/or to partake in the venue's ceilidh, whatever suits you. Also, we haven't rece'd the ceilidh's here this year, but they're well known and usually popular and the venue and staff seem nice. 

You should also note we're not laying on any food or drink, that's all up to you, as is your enjoyment of the night and what you take from it. Neither can we guarantee anyones admission to the venue generally.

We'll have the room from 7pm, so you can arrive any time after this. The free ceilidh starts at 8pm at which time we're told the venue starts to busy, albeit it didn't get overly crowded last year, albeit that was closer to xmas.

For info, Avant Garde is on the Trongate side of the Merchant City, about 5 minutes walk from Argyle Street train station and adjacent to King Street car park and on the same block as the 13th Note Bar/Cafe. See the following link:

We hope to see you on the night if you can make it.

    Hi Folks, with our social only a week away, can I ask you all to check your rsvp and change it if you think you can no longer make this, this will help us get a clearer idea of numbers, hope to see you all there, but as mentioned, if/when you can no longer attend please change your rsvp in good time, thanks
