The International Pan Celtic Festival 2023

11th April 2023 - 16th April 2023

The International Pan Celtic Festival

The International Pan Celtic Festival is a celebration of the celtic cultures of Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Brittany, Isle of Man and Cornwall in music, song, dance, languages, costumes, sport and story telling. This year’s festival has an exciting programme of events to keep everyone entertained, including street performances, a parade, live music and competitions, a truly great family-friendly Easter event.

Musicians and choirs, singers and dancers, bands and storytellers from the participating celtic nations will come together to share their language and culture at this great family-friendly Easter event.

Music: The Pan Celtic festival offers the best in Celtic music, expect to see pipe bands, harpists and fiddlers from Ireland and Scotland as well as traditional folk music, even Celtic rock and pop music.

Club Nights: Club na Féile offers the best overview of the music diversity in the Celtic nations each night during the Festival as Club na Féile is hosted by each of the participating countries. The Scottish Night appeals to Céilí and dance enthusiasts. Make a point of including it in your week’s activities.

Dance: The Inter Celtic Dance Competition is held on Friday. This is perhaps the most colourful and certainly the most dramatic manifestation and expression of the Celtic vibrancy. The flair, panache and sheer energy on display makes for a stunning evening. Public displays of dance can also be viewed during festival week and our Welsh visitors, dressed in traditional costume always give a mesmerising display of their local dances.

PARADES

The Pan Celtic Parade will take place on 17th April 2020 and promises to provide a wonderful, multi colour display from all our Celtic Nations , who will display their National Flag  throughout the parade.
