Celtic and Irish Cultural Society
The Celtic and Irish Cultural Society organise a number of events throughout the year including the Crawley Irish Festival.
In addition, we fund language classes, workshops and more – Crawley and the surrounding area is an ideal location to celebrate our Celtic roots: close to Gatwick Airport, London and major public transport connections.
Without the generous suuport of our sponsors and supporters we would not be able to put on these events, so we thank our primary supporters including the Ireland’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade; Emigrant Support Programme.
The Celtic and Irish Cultural Society predominatly organise events for the Irish community in and around Crawley, West Sussex. The Irish in the UK are one of the largest community groups and the Crawley Irish are no exception.
The CICS organise a number of major events and we invite everyone to come to those events and also to help organise or lend their support. You can get involved by helping as a volunteer or by taking a more active planning role. To find out more, contact us.
Our resources section has been developed to provide information of interest to our site visitors and specifically to those in the south-east of England. This resource will grow over the coming months and we invite contributions about everything and anything Celtic! Whatever you fancy! If you would like to submit some information to our pages, you just need to contact us.
