A team of performers who recently toured the borough with a traditional Plough play to raise funds for a children’s charity have announced plans for their next fundraiser.

The Calverton Real Ale and Plough Play Preservation Society – or CRAPPPS for short- recently performed their fortieth consecutive annual tour of Plough Plays at various alehouses, taking in villages like Calverton, Lambley and also Woodborough.

The latest tour helped raise over £900 for NSPCC and brought the group’s 40-year charity total up to £30,000.

The group are now planning to hold a traditional cèilidh at Calverton Village Hall next month to help bring in more cash for NSPCC.

A ceilidh is a traditional Scottish or Irish social gathering which usually involves playing Gaelic folk music and dancing, either at a house party or a larger concert at a social hall or other community gathering place.

The event will take place from 7pm on Saturday, March 17. Tickets cost £8 and under-15s are free, with proceeds going to Nottinghamshire NSPCC.

Music at the event will be performed by Nottingham-based fiddle and melodeon duo Sheepish Grin. 

A spokesman for the CRAPPPS said:  “We’d like to invite people to a right ‘owd’ knees up at Calverton Village Hall to raise a glass to another 40 years on the road for CRAPPPS.

“It’ll be a foot stomping, toe-tapping ceilidh with much mumming, merriment and memory-laning.”
