Be sure to watch the short film "Spirit of the Festival" and go behind the scenes of the Celtic Colours International Festival. This film, shot in 2015 by filmmaker Jaqueline Mills, takes you on an emotional Island-wide journey filled with breathtaking scenery and heartwarming stories of the people and places that make Celtic Colours an experience like no other.

From concerts to dances and workshops to community suppers, we offer a full range of events against a gorgeous backdrop of autumn colours.
