Feis Week 2017

Fèis Week

Our Fèis week takes place in July and welcomes all young people aged 8-18. No previous experience of music is required, just an enthusiastic attitude and willingness to take part. Aimed at complete beginners to intermediate players, we aim to give all participants something that suits their ability and the opportunity to perform as part of a larger group.

New for 2017: Advanced players in S1-S6 should visit our Advanced Fèis Week page.

Following our hugely successful Fèis week in 2015, Fèis Phàislig returns this July. Children aged 8-18 across Renfrewshire will have the opportunity to take part in traditional music, song, and drama workshops across our 4 day event.

Although some instruments will be available for Fèis participants, own (labelled) instruments should be used where possible. The Fèis cannot be held responsible for instruments. Participants are encouraged to have appropriate insurance cover if bringing their own instruments.

Participants will attend workshops in three instruments/activities across the week but will select five choices in the order preferred to allow flexibility with timetabling. It may not always be possible to have your top three, but we will endeavour to try our best. The first choice class will be the main activity for two sessions each day with the other two choices attended once. Please register promptly to ensure the class of your choice.
