They catch up, swap tales, have frequent coffees and blethers in the Members Lounge, recommend shows and enjoy a package of extra bonuses such a further discounts, invites and much more… What's even better is that being a Celtic Rover not only lets you have a fabulous, fantastic, fun time it also supports the Celtic Connections Education Programme which means that young people get the chance to share in a whole range of amazing  performances from musicians from all over the world."
