Weddings, Birthdays, Anniversaries, Fund-raisers, Corporate events.......... we can help you plan your special occasion.

Over the years, Celebrations has probably played virtually every sort of event it's possible to think of.

Celebrations, is the Ceilidh band of choice for many of the most popular wedding venues in Devon and Cornwall. We are proud that many of our bookings come from personal recommendations, or from guests attending events where we are playing.

Whether you are planning a large wedding celebration, a surprise birthday party, or a quieter get-together with family and friends, we can help you plan your evening (or morning, or afternoon).

We have played for wedding receptions, end of term parties in schools, barn dances in real barns, huge corporate hospitality events, traditional Burns' nights and even a very special Celtic wake, planned in advance to include favourite hymns and Scottish airs.

Leave the organisational worries behind - Chris has been described as having the patience of a saint and the tenacity of a bull-terrier, when organising dancers. The whole aim is for everyone to have fun and enjoy themselves - that's what you pay us to do.


Christine: Caller, piano accordion, electronic bagpipes

Derek V: Violin

Jerry: Guitar, vocals

Derek D: Drums and percussion


From foot-tapping Irish jigs, traditional Scottish and English Country music, with even a few Rags thrown in, Celebrations will always have just the right mix to suit your special occasion.

Thank you for enabling Mum's 80th birthday party to go off with such a bang! We all had an absolutely marvellous evening. Mum's still talking about it and this was largely down to the band's superb playing and Christine's clear guidance. The selection of tunes was so well judged and almost everyone got up and joined in. Mum only missed one dance and that was when she was opening presents.
