Membership is open to anyone with an interest in Gaelic.
The annual subscription is just £ 6.00 ( concession - £ 3.00 ).
We support the Gaelic language classes provided by Scottish Borders Council and provide a Programme of events throughout the year with a Gaelic focus. These events are all open to non-members.
Our informal ceilidhs feature local and invited singers and musicians and can reflect a varied musical mix. Everyone is welcome, whether as performer or simply to join the audience.
We also hold talks and concerts where Gaelic-speaking writers, artists and commentators are invited to speak or perform.
New Members are very welcome! Fŗilte oirbh uile!
