*Postponed* Cèilidh Foghair

**Out of respect for the Queen’s many connections with North Uist, we have decided to postpone all Dandelion events until later in the year.**

 

We invite you to celebrate the harvest island-style with a ceilidh dance on North Uist! We’ll have lots of machair potatoes, food inspired by local Gaelic stories and music from our musician in residence, Duncan MacLeod, plus leading local band, Beinn Lee.

6pm: First half: food and music from Duncan MacLeod, An Gàrradh Musician in Residence

7.30pm: Second half: Beinn Lee Concert & Ceilidh

Please book your free ticket using the system below. There are two halves to the Cèilidh Foghair and you are very welcome to join us for both. If you can only attend one half of the Cèilidh Foghair, please choose a specific half ticket so we can accommodate as many folk as possible. 

Dandelion is an ambitious creative programme running from April to September 2022 across Scotland, inviting everyone to sow, grow and share. The project aims to make growing your own food as easy and accessible as possible to people of all ages with events and activities taking place all over the country – from the remotest islands to the centres of cities.

In September, the programme culminates with hundreds of Harvest celebration taking place in schools, Unexpected Gardens and community spaces across Scotland, bringing people together to celebrate a growing season like no other. Dandelion invites everyone across Scotland to take part by attending a Harvest event or creating their own homegrown Harvest. 

Dandelion is commissioned by EventScotland and funded by the Scottish Government and is part of UNBOXED: Creativity in the UK.
