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!
