Wild, outspoken and buried face down on the Isle of Harris, poet Màiri Ruadh is back from beyond the grave, with one last night to resurrect the true meaning of the cèilidh.  She has fire in her belly and is determined never to be silenced again.

Cèilidh is a new play full of live music, songs and stories.  It is subtitled and suitable for anyone with or without Gaelic, but only those ready for a cèilidh like no other!




A playful look at how friendships are built, broken and mended – a whimsical adventure featuring tents that have a life of their own, bobble hats, and of course, lots of fun in wellies!

A brand new show for audiences aged 3-5 years from Indepen-dance 4, Scotlands inclusive professional dance company.

Eddie & the Slumber Sisters

Meet the Slumber Sisters. An all-singing trio whose job it is to monitor our dreams and ensure that our night-time wanderings remain healthy and safe. Armed with an infinite supply of remedies, they arrive to create dreams that will help us through difficult times.

Eddie soon catches their attention. She might be quiet and reserved by day but at night Eddie’s dreams are increasingly wild, chaotic and sometimes terrifying. It’s been like this ever since her gran died. As Eddie’s grief comes out in force at night, the Slumber Sisters decide it’s time to intervene.

An interactive show from award-winning Catherine Wheels Theatre Company that with warm-heart, songs and humour explores grieving through the eyes of a child.
