About

The multi-award winning Hebridean Celtic Festival (HebCelt) has been a key feature in the cultural landscape of the Outer Hebrides since 1996.

This internationally renowned event has a unique setting in the Scottish Hebridean island of Lewis, the heartland of the Gaelic language and culture.

HebCelt passionately protects and promotes its heritage, including the vibrant Gaelic and traditional music that is both part of its history and its contemporary life. It mixes the best local talent with leading Scottish, UK and world artists and brings together household names and emerging talent to provide a feast of music to appeal to all ages.

HebCelt is a cultural phenomenon for its community, it offers a sense of homecoming to those islanders returning to meet family and friends and it extends a Hebridean hand of friendship to visitors who invariably come back for more.

In these pandemic years, the HebCelt team have had to adopt a different approach to presenting content. Seisean HebCelt was produced in July 2020 and the team are currently working to stage a hybrid programme (live and digital) during 14-17 July 2021.

The Trust hope to be back with HebCelt in a live format in 13-16 July 2022.
