Galson Estate Heritage Week    


Due to Covid-19 social distancing, this year's events are online



DÙTHCHAS is an annual week-long festival looking at the heritage of the Galson Estate community, and we focus on:

History & Genealogy, Music & Dance, 

Traditional Skills, Food & Drink, 

and Language & Writing. 

Urras Oighreachd Ghabhsainn partners with organisations and groups within the community to highlight events and workshops that are already running with a few additional talks/pop-ups and workshops added that further emphasise the heritage topics in bold above. 

'S e fèis fad-seachdain a tha ann an DÙTHCHAS, a' toirt sùil air dualchas is cultar ar coimhearsnachd anns na raointean a leanas:

Eachdraidh & Sloinntearachd, Ceòl & Danns,

Sgilean Traidiseanta, Biadh & Deoch,

agus Cànan & Sgrìobhadh.


Bidh Urras Oighreachd Ghabhsainn ag obair ann an compàirteachas le buidhnean is gnothachasan sa choimhearsnachd gus tachartasan agus bùthan-obrach a shanas, le fear no dhà a bharrachd ga chur air dòigh leinn fhìn a bhios a' freagairt air na cuspairean gu h-àirde.

Mòran Taing!
