Fraser Valley Gilbert and Sullivan Society holds fundraising Ceilidh

Irish-inspired gathering will feature music, dancing, and silent auction on March 7

The sixth annual fundraising Ceilidh, known as Spring Swing Fling, will be held on March 7 to support the Fraser Valley Gilbert and Sullivan Society (FVGSS).

The musical theatre company puts on a variety of pantomine productions throughout the year, most recently a 1970s version of Cinderella.

The Ceilidh – a traditional Scottish or Irish social gathering – will be held at the Rose Room at Valleyview in Surrey.

The evening will feature a live band comprised of Adrian Duncan, Tim Tucker, Hennie Wilhelm, Steve Lay, Mike Balser and several surprise guests.

There will also be a silent auction for a variety of items including special vacation stays and specialty items.

A swing dance competition might also be on the roster, so be sure to bring your dancing shoes if you do plan on attending.

Funds raised will help FVGSS put on further shows in the future; their next production will be announced in early spring.

Founded in 1983, actors and theatre lovers from all over the Fraser Valley – including Langley – come together to participate and take-in the productions.

More information and tickets at www.fvgss.org.

The Rose Room is located at 14464 72nd Ave and the Ceilidh gets underway at 7:30 p.m.

Early bird tickets are $18 before March 1 and $25 after.
