FIFE's FIRST GAELIC-FRIENDLY PARK

Ceud mìle fàilte

  

In 2018 we were delighted to formally adopt ‘Gaelic Friendly’ status as one of the key partners in Gaelic development across Fife.  The final stage of this saw the instalment of Gaelic signage in the park and an awareness session for staff and volunteers, and we are the FIRST Gaelic Friendly park in Fife (possibly the East of Scotland).


We have hosted a number of Gaelic events in the park and are keen to embrace the links in landscape, history and heritage, as well as explore more creative avenues such as the Folk Sunday at our annual music festival.


More Gaelic events and opportunities will be scheduled as 2019 is the UNESCO Year of Indigenous Languages and we will be working with Fife Council and the Partnership Group for Gaelic in Fife to raise the profile of Gaelic, Scots and BSL and highlight Silverburn as a venue for a wide range of activities.
