Blasad Gàidhlig – Gaelic on Holiday

Every Wednesday, 3-4pm – An introduction to Gaelic

Abairtean, ainmean-àite, eachdraidh, cultar…

Gaelic is the native language of this area and you will find it all around you, on place-names, road signs and spoken by many in the community. Come along for an informal introduction to the Gaelic language and culture and learn a little Gaelic. For complete beginners. Fàilte ron a h-uile duine! Saor an asgaidh. Everybody welcome! Free entry. In the meeting room, upstairs in the Iain Noble Building, across the road from the main entrance to the College Campus.

SEALL all go to the end of December

SEALL is delighted that we have been given the go-ahead by Creative Scotland with our programme of events up to the end of December. A generous funding package allows us to expand our events and develop our quality management of those events (thankyou Marie Lewis and Sara Bain) from March to the end of the year.
We are now working hard to complete funding for the Skye Festival in July and August.

The Full Colour Programme is HERE

SEALL’s new Spring 2018 full colour programme has been sent to the printers so will be available very soon. Then you can sit in the comfort of your bath and digest the wonderful list of events up to June. Download your copy of the SPRING  PROGRAMME

Look out for event changes

Once we publish an event it then gets into all sorts of public listings. If the event has to be changed it is impossible for us to change all those listings. So always keep a look out here for changes, or make sure you are getting our weeklly email or find us on Facebook.

SEALL at Showcase Scotland

SEALL was well represented at the recent 5-day Showcase Scotland gathering in Glasgow as part of Celtic Connections. They met with over 120 international festival and event organisers, attended meetings and the Trade Fair, and worked hard all day and all evening seeing more than 25 different bands. It is tiring work but someone has to do it. We also distributed 300 Skye Festival postcards around the venues.

Event no 1,000 or 1,504?

SEALL’s 1000th event in 2014 was fake news! We have been updating our archival database of every event we have promoted since 1991. Our wonderful celebration on 3 May 2014 now appears to have been event no 1,504! To date we have reached 1,808 – so not long to 2,000! Soon you will be able to see the complete list.

Coming soon for 2018

In a couple of weeks this space will be filled with a programme of wonderful events for 2018. Just making the final confirmations before we go live.

Breakish Folk CLub

Occasionally we are very happy to support other like-minded groups – particualrly when our own programme is a bit thin!

SEALL’s new and extended Board

At a busy AGM on 15 November SEALL was delighted to welcome aboard 3 new Directors: Eilidh MacFadyen, Student Liaison Officer at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig (and who probably halves the average age of the Board!); Rose Hill of Broadford and John White of Kilmuir. They join the current members: Rosie Macdonald, Kath MacLeod, Alistair MacAoidh, Robert Spode, Jacqui MacKinnon, Pam Allen and Duncan MacInnes.

SEALL AGM and new Directors

The A.G.M. and Members’ evening is on Wednesday 15 November in our new office upstairs in the old courtyard of Sabhal Mòr Ostaig (next An Talla Mòr). Come along to find out what a great year we had in 2017, and talk about plans for 2018 over a glass of wine. We are always interested in widening the expertise of our Directors. We are losing Eileen Armstrong, our chairperson this year, so are looking for at least one new Board Member. If you are interested download SEALL Board application form
