What is Seachdain na Gàidhlig?
Seachdain na Gàidhlig or World Gaelic Week is a celebration of the Scottish Gaelic Language that takes place each year across Scotland. It looks to promote Gaelic for fluent speakers, learners and even people who want to start learning.
This is done through both official events and events run by the community, some of which are even free!
There are similar weeks of celebration for Gaelic in other countries! Seachdain na Gaeilge is held in Ireland and Mìos nan Gàidheal takes place in Nova Scotia.
How can I get involved?
Seachdain na Gàidhlig was from the 20th – 26th of February this year and is now over.
Events for the rest of the year can be found on the Cleachdi events page. Cleachdi can be used all year round to find Gaelic events near you if you are keen to join in before or after Gaelic week!
You can also keep up to date with Seachdain na Gàidhlig from their Instagram to remind you of the dates for this year or the next.
We will also be covering a range of content in Gaelic over the year and during Seachdain na Gàidhlig, you can find this by following our Instagram and TikTok.
