Celtic Rover ensures you make the most of your festival experience with a range of discounts on tickets and ‘money can’t buy’ benefits while supporting our important Education Programme.
“Celtic Connections is when old friends meet up and new friends join in. 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."- Lilian, Celtic Rover
Thanks to our 2018 Celtic Rover members, our Education Programme saw more than 12,000 school children across Scotland learn about traditional, folk and world music. For many this was their first time experiencing live music!
The Festival’s Education Programme engages more children than ever before through concerts in Glasgow as well as free workshops we deliver in the schools which allow pupils to try out traditional Celtic instruments such as the bodhran, fiddle, clarsach and whistle, with some of the best professional Celtic musicians in the country on hand to share their experience and skills.
Become a Celtic Rover for Celtic Connections 2019 now before our programme is announced Thursday 25th October.
