Description

Join us in June for a fun-filled, family get-together celebrating the Gaelic language! Open to GME pupils and their families, it will be a weekend packed with fun activities. Check out the line up below to see what we have in store!


Saturday 10th June

Circus skills & Story telling - Learn circus skills with Ariel Killick, an award-winning Scots Gaelic performance artist. (www.independentstateofhappiness.com) Be enthralled by her magical, interactive storytelling in the Birks forest right here in Aberfeldy!

Craft workshop - Ribbons, bells, flags, bits and bobs! Create a fun streamer, flag or mask for our colourful parade to the castle ceilidh!

Music workshops - Our music workshops will be provided by Eilidh Cormack, a gold medallist who performed at this year's Celtic Connections and Jamie MacDonald, a fiddler who was involved in the Feisean nan Gaidheal Fuaran which saw young and older folk working together in their local community; collecting, researching and eventually recording and performing songs from their own area. The show was performed at Blas, Celtic Colours (Cape Breton) and Celtic Connections.

Dance workshops - The ceilidh band Contra-alt-delete will get the children warmed up and well practiced so they can show off their dance moves at the evening ceilidh.

BBQ and Family Ceilidh - Early evening BBQ at the Chraggs followed by a short parade to the famous Castle Menzies to dance the night away with ceilidh band Contra-alt-delete.


Sunday 11th June

Outdoor activities - Fun in the forest with bushcraft skills and den building with Spòrs Gàidhlig.

Cinema - Sit back and relax in The Birks Cinema Aberfeldy after a fun packed weekend.
