Cèilidh Foghair

We are delighted, a bit later than originally planned, to invite you to celebrate the autumn harvest island-style with a ceilidh dance on North Uist! We will have a good spread of sandwiches, home baking inspired by local Gaelic stories and music from our musician in residence, Duncan MacLeod, plus leading Uist band, Beinn Lee.  There will be teas and coffees plus a licensed bar.

Please book your free ticket using the system below. We intend to honour all previous bookings for the ceilidh, although there is now no seated meal. We’ll be in touch with ticketholders soon to ask if you’re still keen to come along. 

Dandelion was an ambitious creative programme running from April to October 2022 across Scotland, inviting people to sow, grow and share.? The project aimed 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 our country – from the centre of cities to the most remote of Scottish islands.

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

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