Time is running out for participants to submit their performances for The Virtual Royal National Mòd which will be held online this year.

However, An Comunn Gàidhealach have announced that the entry deadline will now be extended to August 21, meaning that participants wishing to take part at this year’s Mòd now have extra time to register their submissions.

The Royal National Mòd is the principal Gaelic language festival and it takes place annually in October, normally in different locations throughout Scotland.

Seonag Anderson, Mòd officer, said: “With children now returning to schools in early August, we especially want to give schools more time to enter and take part in this year’s Mòd, so participants now have an extended period, until August 21 to enter.

"We’re delighted with the effort people have gone to with their submissions so far, across the range of art-forms.

"The extended date for submissions now gives schools and pupils the extra opportunity to take part.”

James Graham, chief executive of An Comunn said: “It’s been a difficult year for the arts and festivals like our own this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

"None of us imagined that we would be holding our events online this year but being able to do so allows us to showcase the Gaelic arts despite the current situation.”

The Virtual Royal National Mòd will be held in October 2020.
