The Gathering – Fri 24 – Sun 26 Apr 2020

This is the first time we’ve hosted our flagship event on an island, so expect to be as inspired by the dramatic Skye scenery outside as the performances on stage inside!

The theme for this year is Greener Touring.  We’ll be sharing lots of ideas for sustainable programming, audience transport, greener venues alongside a very exciting showcase and evening programme!
The whole event will take place at Sabhal Mór Ostaig, and we’re grateful for the support from SEALL in programming our evenings.
