Promoting Irish Traditional Music in Leicester

Weekly music classes for young people in term time

Monthly sessions – all welcome! NEXT SESSION FRIDAY 8 APRIL

Weekly adult music workshop – for beginners and improvers


FleadhFest was an exciting initiative undertaken by Comhaltas Units during 2021, in circumstances when normal Fleadh Cheoil activity was not possible. FleadhFest is the story of Comhaltas told from the point of view of each County and Province – the story of the people, community and culture that sustains our traditions of music, song, dance, storytelling and language, ensuring it is a living tradition that can be passed on to future generations.

Watch the online video for the Leicester Branch story (the Leicester contribution starts at 17m 15s, after the Coventry Branch).

Children wanted!

Do you have children or grandchildren? Or know anyone who has? We could make you really proud of them
in no time at all. Just bring them along on a Monday evening for a free taster lesson and it could be the
start of a truly wonderful experience for children and grown-ups alike. No previous experience necessary.
