Gaelic-related Activities

Failte! We’re promoting an awareness of the area’s native dialect in our community with diverse Gaelic related activities running all year round.

Highland Perthshire has a large number of Gaelic speakers as well as the most Gaelic place names in Scotland and is home to the Perthshire & Angus Provincial Mòd.

Gaelic Medium Education is growing in Breadalbane Academy – Highland Perthshire’s secondary school – and increasing the presence of, and opportunity to learn and use, the Gaelic language is a priority for The Birks Cinema Trust.

There’s lots of ways to get involved…

  • Bi-lingual storytelling working with songs and stories collected by Lady Evelyn Stuart Murray
  • Live literature events and talks linking language, culture and traditions
  • A monthly Gaelic Café offering the chance to learn and practice the language by mixing with speakers of all ages and abilities in a relaxed atmosphere over tea and biscuits
  • Gaelic-related film screenings
  • Gaelic awareness training

…and we’re also planning to introduce Gaelic signage throughout the cinema, including our Café Bar menus!
