Fèis na Dàmhair

Although the October Fèisean cannot take place as normal this year, we are delighted they will be offering online classes during the week they were due to take place.

Classes are offered free but donations would be welcome to help cover costs.  If you are able to make a donation you may do so through our JustGiving page.

Between 19-23 October, Fèis Air an Oir and Fèis a’ Bhaile will deliver a week of classes online through Zoom! You will find more information by following the link below where you can also book places. Please note that when you make your selection you will be booked for the classes from Monday – Friday. 

The majority of classes will be suitable for children aged 8 and 18. We also have a number of classes for children aged 5 – 7 and singing and a ‘tunes’ class for adults.
