Revival of Fèis an Rudha

Former Fèis an Rudha Chair, Cllr Donald John Macsween, has warmly welcomed a move to re-establish the popular cultural event in the Point area.

A meeting will be held in Point School on Wednesday 29th February at 7.30pm to discuss how to take matters forward.

The initiative has come from Colin George Morrison, Comunn na Gaidhlig Development Officer for the Broadbay area, who said: “We have received a good number of responses from parents who are willing to help with the resurrection of a Fèis type programme

in the Point area.”

The next step to re-establish the Point Fèis is to hold a community meeting to discuss how we can take this further. This meeting will take place in Point School on Wednesday 29th February at 7.30pm.”

Jenna Morrison, the Western Isles Development officer for Fèisean nan Gàidheal will also be attending the meeting to take part in the discussion and answer any questions.

Mr Macsween said: “This is a great opportunity for the area of Point, particularly for young people interested in music. I absolutely support this move to re-establish this event on the Outer Hebrides cultural circuit. I would call on as many people as possible going along to the meeting on the 29th to show the high level of support for Fèis an Rudha”.
