About The Royal National Mod

Am Mòd Nàiseanta Rìoghail (The Royal National Mòd), the world's biggest Gaelic festival, kicks off on the 11th October.

The nine-day spectacular of Gaelic music, arts and sport will take place in Glasgow for the first time since 1990, with a host of activities and competitions on throughout the week.

This year will welcome representatives from all over the world with the London Gaelic Choir returning to the stage after a long absence from the Royal National Mòd. Alongside the main competitions, The Mòd Fringe returns with a jam-packed programme filled with ceilidhs, concerts, sports and more.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Royal National Mod are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
