Lackford Ceilidh


The Lackford Ceilidh is back and will be staged on 30th June this year. The Ceilidh will be hosted at Bunkers Barn, Lackford, IP28 6HD where you will be able to dance to one of East Anglia’s premier ceilidh dance bands Skylarking. The band members of Skylarking have played for Lackford before as they used to be members of RSVP who gave us such pleasure at past events. Guests will be able to enjoy refreshments from Lackford’s favourite pop-up local pub “Bill’s Bar”. There will also be a good quality barbecue meal for all the guests (a free meal available by presenting your entrance ticket). Ample car parking will be available, although it’s a nice walk from the village or a bike ride away. Ticket Prices – Adults (over 16) £15 – Children (16 or under) £5.  Tickets are on sale for the event now using one of the following methods:

or contact the Lackford Community Council via

All profits from the event will be split 50/50 and donated to the Lackford Church and Focus on Africa charities (see below). Donations of Salads and Raffle Prizes welcome.

Focus on Africa

Focus on Africa is a small charity which raises money to improve the quality of life for people where we can in Kenya. Some of the money that was raised last year was used to install electricity into an orphanage, to install water into another and to replace a roof of a school which had been ripped off in storm damage. The charity also purchase school books and provide the occasional party for children. Each year, a team of 10/12 people from all walks of life go to Kenya to physically do the work or oversee work being done. Every penny raised is used in Kenya.

Lackford Church

The church of St Lawrence, Lackford is a fine old building but has a few problems in the tower which need attention. The church also has no toilet facilities or easily heated meeting space for the community, so we want to raise some money to provide these facilities.

If you feel you would like to help with these charities and at the same time have a fantastic evening out, then join us at the Lackford Ceilidh on 30th June.
