Invitations have been sent out for the Official Là na #Gàidhlig cèilidh as a ‘thank you’ to supporters and followers of Theatre Gu Leòr, especially during the last tour of “Shrapnel”.
The event will be for a small gathering of friends of the Theatre company to get together, have a few laughs and take plenty of selfies – we hear they’re a competitive bunch and will be vying for the prize up for grabs for the best selfie competition!
This will be the first “Official Community Event” of Là na #Gàidhlig, following in the footsteps of last year’s Gaelic Twitter Day hub in Coffee & Craic. It comes about off the back of the crowdfunder earlier in the year. Funds raised from the crowdfunder is helping to fund other community events in the city, mostly in schools, with banners and balloons.
The ambition is to grow Community Là na #Gàidhlig Events into a series of annual community parties across the world aimed at celebrating Gaelic language and culture.
In the meantime, we’re hearing of several other ‘unofficial’ parties taking place, and we’re looking forward to seeing posts, pictures and videos of them on Là na #Gàidhlig!
The Là na #Gàidhlig team will be in Glasgow city centre on Thursday afternoon to promote the Day. If you have some time between 2pm and 4pm why not come along and join us and help spread some Gaelic awareness to Glasgow’s shoppers! You can let us know here:
