A POPULAR annual dance will return to Morpeth next week as the KEVI Ceilidh Band takes to the floor.

The event has been organised by King Edward VI School (KEVI) and Morpeth Methodist Church as a fundraiser for two good causes.

Proceeds will go to the Wansbeck Hospital Oasis relatives’ room, as well as help to fund KEVI student Matthew Court’s teaching trip to Africa with the Project Trust.

The entertainment will be provided by the school band, which has enlisted the services of professional caller Mike Sutton, and food is included in the ticket price.

The ceilidh will take place in the Lower School Hall on Friday, March 2, from 7.30pm.

Tickets cost £5 for adults and £4 for students aged 18 and under.

They can be bought from the school office in advance, or on the door on the night.
