A celebration of the city's own Irish community, around St Patrick's Day in March every year.

Cead Mile Failte!
Welcome to our 10th Anniversary.

2020 events are in place right now so check the listings on our diary page.  

Below are two of the main events from our diary page.

An Irish Dance Spectacular.

This St Patrick's Season join us as we celebrate ten years of Siamsoir.
We are delighted to have reached such a milestone and cannot wait to share with you all our hard work and celebrate the last ten years of Siamsoir success.
This year we will welcome our warm-up act Folkin Shenanigans to the stage to get the party started.
With 70 Irish Dancers taking to the stage to showcase the highlights of Siamsoir's back catalogue and some new pieces too, it is sure to be a night to get your toes tapping!  Tickets available from Eventbrite.  

As always we are working with Motor Neurone Disease, Scotland to raise St in aid of Motor Neurone Disease Scotland.
