Dress: A Ceilidh in its original meaning is a group of people gathered together, very often purely by chance, who socialise and drink ( very important) together. They entertain one another by song, poem, story and good company. Nowadays, apart from in the sparsely populated parts, the entertainment is more often pre-arranged, as in this case. Cousin George has arranged an excellent evening of entertainment. In the spirit of a Ceilidh, the dress is fairly casual. Both men and women should come in whatever form of dress they find comfortable. It may well be that the ladies will want to dress up a little, but that is far from necessary, especially after a longish day at the castle. Come as you wish, you can wear the skirt you are happiest with and your wife can happily wear the trousers. Why change the habits of a lifetime.
