Following the success of a ceilidh held in a north Northumberland village in the spring, another is taking place tomorrow night.

It takes place in Beadnell WI Hall at 7.30pm to raise funds for the village’s Christmas lights appeal.

The event will feature live band Penny Dot, a pie and pea supper and a bar.

Organiser Peter Jenkinson said: “Everyone is welcome.

“Ceilidhs are great fun for all ages and there will be a caller to help with the dances.”

Tickets are £10 per person including supper and are available from local outlets or by contacting Mr Jenkinson on 07550 014085.

Last year saw the village have a lights display and switch-on, with carol singing and more, for the first time.
