Our Story So Far

Parents Information

Fèis Mhoireibh (Fèis Moray) was set up in 2007 by Norma Gunn, Lesley Morrison and members of the Moray Gaelic Choir with the help and encouragement from Arthur Cormack (Feisean nan Gaidheal Director) and David Boag (Feisean nan Gaidheal Development Manager).

Until 2017 Fèis Mhoireibh has run over one weekend in May and gives children the opportunity to engage with traditional Scottish music and Gaelic culture in a fun and informal setting. Children can choose from a wide range of classes involving traditional Scottish instruments, songs, storytelling, art, dance and drama.

The weekend format means that the children can enjoy two full days of classes with the chance toexperience a traditional Scottish Ceilidh on the Sunday. The Ceilidh is always a high point for the children, as they enjoy being able to perform in front of their families and show them what they have been learning with their tutors.

Although Fèis Mhoireibh is only one weekend in the year, it has already spun off into a variety of follow-on classes and workshops which run throughout the year. These classes have included Gaelic singing, clarsach (harp), step dance, guitar, whistle and chanter. It is worth checking the What’s On page regularly to see what is on offer or the Gallery to see what we get up to.

Fèis Mhoireibh is currently looking forward to another fantastic weekend in October 2017 in a new setting at Gordonstoun School. Details can be found here.

We look forward to seeing you there.
