Festival 'the Celtic Summer': 100 years Celtic at UU!

From to

It was 100 years ago this summer that the first research into Celtic languages and culture was conducted at UU. We're celebrating that with 'The Celtic Summer'.

Featuring lively Irish-Gaelic tunes and plenty of Celtic entertainment

The Celtic Summer kicks off on 31st June at Tivoli Vredenburg, where the Irish-speaking band IMLÉ will provide the official opening. The following day, you can relax and wander along the stalls in the courtyard of the University Library. Throughout the day, there will be workshops, lectures, films, new publications, and musical surprises. Here's a sneak peek:

  • Lecture: 'What is a Celt?'

  • Minicourse: Old Frisian

  • Lecture: '100 Years of Celtic'

  • Workshop: Making folding almanac

  • Tragicomix: Branwen - a performance

  • The Celtic Harp - a Musical Journey

  • Workshop: Fidchell
