The Edinburgh Street Ceilidh
Sunday 21st May 2017This event has passed.

The Jacobites are a professional ceilidh band based in Edinburgh that have performed at weddings and events across Scotland, the UK and Europe. They are also the founders of The Edinburgh Street Ceilidh, a free street event held usually on the Royal Mile.

The Jacobites will perform the Edinburgh Street Ceilidh for the first time in the City Art Centre. They will be teaching and calling all the well-known ceilidh dances to members of the public for free. So come along and ceilidh dance to our traditional music, a fun and uplifting start to our exhibition.

No need to book just drop in.

Enjoy a visit to the City Art Centre, a main Edinburgh art gallery with one of the best collections of Scottish art. We show interesting exhibitions from our own collections and from all over the world. Come and see favourites from the our Nationally Significant Collection of Scottish art; new work from local or international artists or exhibitions from other countries. Exhibitions of historic and modern photography, contemporary art and design, architecture and the built environment are staged in a rolling programme. An escalator and lift help you move around six floors, and you can be refreshed by sampling the menus in the café, or buy art books, cards, handbags and jewellery from our ground floor shop.
