Scotland's Catalan Centre aims to make known and promote the Catalan culture and language in Scotland and to become a bridge between the two nations and cultures.
With this in mind, we regularly organise Catalan Language Lessons for adults in Edinburgh; talks on literature, art or history; we celebrate the Catalan festivals of Sant Jordi, Castanyada, Diada and Cagatio; we meet up for dinner or to watch the football; amongst many other one-off activities that we have had, such as the Catalan Centre's 10th anniversary in 2008, a Sardana dancing course, a guided tour of the Scottish Parliament, visits to museums, science workshops with the children, mountain walks, book swaps, etc. etc.
We have also collaborated with other local groups and associations in the organisation of several events such as an havaneras concert cycle, a Catalan film festival in the Filmhouse, an exhibition of prints of Salvador Dali's work, a geganters tour and a bastoners dance demonstration.
All events are open to the public. Entry normally costs £2 per adult, and those under 16 have free entrace to all events.
Although the Catalan Centre does not have an actual permanent venue, events are normally held either Edinburgh's Morningside area (see it in the map) or in the Glasgow's West End (see it in the map), except, of course, when we go to a museum or out into the countryside.
For further information on the activities that have been programmed for this term, please refer to the Events Calendar.
