Scotland's LGBT+ ceilidhs.
Back again in 2018!

The Spring OUT Ball Ceilidh
Saturday March 17th 2018
Assembly Rooms, Edinburgh


Thank you so much for coming! Our thanks to all supporters, volunteers, The Veritable Ceilidh Club and venue staff.

We hope you'd a great night. The Assembly Rooms' bar issues we'd had in March were resolved fully, and we hope you liked these improvements, including the sleek neon bar!

The Spring OUT Ball Ceilidh is on Saturday 17th March 2018 and will, we are confident, be much busier and in several ways better!

We thank everyone for their support as we restore the ceilidhs to Scotland's LGBT+ calendar, and get the evening 'just right' for us all. Lots of ideas have been coming in - thank you - and we're paying active attention. It's all been hugely constructive, and that's encouraging for us. 

These are events for and by the Scottish LGBT+ community and friends, including those from other countries; together we raise important funds for Waverley Care - some £4k this year; and we are determined to make the ceilidhs flagship events of quality and joy at fair ticket prices, dazzling occasions in which Scotland can have pride!

Our plans for 2018 are to hold The Spring OUT Ball Ceilidh, the biggest annual event, at the Assembly Rooms; plus a revised OUT Ball Halloween Party at a smaller but beautiful venue as more of a 'party ceilidh club'.

Do let us know your thoughts!

Waverley Care has confirmed the sum raised by The Spring OUT Ball Ceilidh 2017 was a fantastic £3,000. Halloween figures are being finalised at the moment. We have and will continue to add support from the Hogmanay Snow Ball Ceilidh, too.

The best venue!

The Assembly Rooms in Edinburgh is the grandest civic building in Scotland available for this kind of event. Around £10m was been spent recently, transforming the ballrooms and facilities. It's now a dazzling and palatial place unique in that an event can have two facets: at The OUT Ball Ceilidh™ events there's both a ceilidh and a lavish discotheque.

Awesome value!

Yes indeed! Despite all the beautiful enhancements at The Assembly Rooms, making it a much more expensive venue to use than in the past, we've worked hard to keep ticket prices reasonable. This is because The Authentic Ceilidh and Balls Company, based in Edinburgh and members of the community, use the venue for other major events such as the famous Hogmanay Snow Ball.
