Adult Winter Weekend @ Badaguish

BADAGUISH WEEKEND 2019

 We offer an annual residential music course for adult learners at Badaguish, near Aviemore, in November. This course has a limited capacity and priority is given to members of Fèis the Music as a thank you for the contribution they make to Fèis Rois throughout the year, but other adult learners are welcome too. 

This year’s course will take place from Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th November 2019
