Fleadh

  

Each year, members of the club compete in the Fleadh. In some ways similar to the Welsh Eisteddfod, the Fleadh is split into age grouped competitions for each different instrument, duets, trios and larger groups.

The Midlands Regional Fleadh is held each year at Princethorpe college, near Rugby, with the top two competitors in each category usually qualifying for the All Britain Fleadh, which is in a different location each year.

The top two competitors in each category of the All Britain Fleadh usually qualify for the prestigious All Ireland Fleadh, held in different locations around Ireland. The All Ireland Fleadh is the pinnacle of Irish music. In addition to the competitions, the host town is transformed into a huge fesitval of music and dance, with thousands of visitors enjoying the entertainment.

 

 

New Year 2019

The new year got off to a great start with the first Friday of the month session at the St Julian's Inn. Tuesday night classes have started again at the St Julian's Methodist Church Hall, and we are starting to think about the Midlands Regional Fleadh later in April.

St Julians First Session a Success

New Venue for the Session a Great Success!

Last week saw our first session in the new venue for the first Friday of the month session, at the St Julians Inn. There was a good turn out, and we were made to feel very welcome. We will continue to hold the session at the new location.

The next one will be on Friday 4th May, see you there!
