Ceilidh band Geckoes are returning to Baldock for the fifth time to take part in the Unicorn Ceilidhs.

The dance event will take place on Friday, September 8 at St Mary's Church Hall, with caller Barry Goodman.

Geckoes, which first formed in 1986, are in the front rank of bands on the English ceilidh scene.

The band has had a few personnel changes since then, but has been playing at dances ever since.

Their roots are in Oxfordshire, but they are influenced by music from around the world, and appear at ceilidhs and folk festivals throughout the country.


Barry Goodman has worked as a caller with ceilidh bands across the country, also appearing at ceilidhs and folk festivals nationwide - including Sidmouth, Towersey and Chippenham folk festivals, as well as Oxford, Godalming and South Hampshire.

Interval entertainment will be provided by Whitchurch Morris, from the Vale of Aylesbury. 

The evening starts at 8pm, with doors open from 7.30pm, and finishes at 11pm.

Adult tickets cost £13, with children's and concession tickets also available.

Attendees can enjoy a real ale, cider, wine and soft drinks bar, and a raffle will be held during the interval.
