Our Fèis Week is an opportunity for individuals to come together and develop skills in the Gaelic arts – song, dance, drama, traditional music and more. Tuition is accessible and fun whilst being professional and effective, giving young people an engaging and inspiring experience of Gaelic language and culture. Taking place across 4 days in July, participants choose three different choices from a list of various instruments, dance, drama, filmmaking and singing.
Across the week, participants work with their tutors and others in their class to prepare a piece for our finale concert. They will also take part in Gaelic language activities each morning, including our annual Fèis song – a song for everyone to learn together which is the finale of the participants’ concert.
Price for 4 days, including Fèis t-shirt = £75
We work hard to keep access open to all young people and are fortunate to secure public funding to support our events. Places at our events are subsidised wherever possible with the true cost of each place being much higher.
Payment can be made in full or using our deposit scheme. If you choose to pay with our deposit scheme, 25% will be taken at the time of booking with the remaining balance due 1 month before the event.
We have a limited number of fully funded places at our events for pupils entitled to free school meals or for families on low incomes (proof of confirmation required). Tick the relevant box on our application form to make an application to this scheme.
Our Fèis Week usually takes place in the third week of July from Tuesday – Friday. Each day runs from 10am-4pm with participants asked to arrive from 9.45am.
