Imbolc or Imbolg, also called Saint Brigid’s Day, is a Gaelic traditional festival. It marks the beginning of spring, and for Christians it is the feast day of Saint Brigid. It is held on 1st February, halfway between the winter solstice and the spring equinox. Historically, its traditions were widely observed throughout Ireland, Scotland, and the Isle of Man. It is one of the four Gaelic seasonal festivals—along with Bealtaine, Lughnasadh and Samhain.

Please note. In our continued adherence to the ‘rule of six’, only artists who have been booked in advance may perform.
