Gaelic College Christmas Weekend

From December 8 – 10, 2023 Bradan Press is heading to St. Anns, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia for An Nollaig Ghàidhealach / the Gaelic College Christmas Weekend! We will be at the Gaelic College the whole weekend, taking part in classes and of course selling our books, including the newest children’s title Catastrophe at the Christmas CeilidhChì sinn ann sibh!  We’ll see you there!

Acadia Craft Expo Vending

We had a wonderful weekend at the Acadia Craft Expo, November 17 – 19, 2023! We so enjoyed being able to see some of you and share our brand-new books as well. It’s wonderful to talk to teachers excited to find our Gaelic resources, customers who bought our books last year and loved them, and the many people whose parents, grandparents, or great-grandparents were Gaelic speakers. If you weren’t able to make it this past weekend to see us and our booth, here’s a quick livestream booth tour that we did on Facebook. Here are some photos of our decorated booth, along with a photo of a surprise visit from Bodach na Nollaig agus a bhean (Santa Claus and his wife)!
