Seachdain na Gàidhlig is a week of celebration of Scottish Gaelic that takes place every year.

Here you can learn what it’s about and how to get involved.

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?

This year Seachdain na Gàidhlig is running from the 20th – 26th of February.

There are lots of ways you can get involved, the best place to find events is on Seachdain na Gàidhlig’s events page.

Most of these events will also be found on the Cleachdi events page as well. 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.
