Between the past and the future. Lies passion…

The Celtic community is vast, colourful, raw, passionate, creative and engaging.

The Celtic Link is the very first magazine of its kind, specifically created to enable people to experience all that is amazing about Celtic culture and heritage around the world.

Created by five-times Cornish dance champion, ceilidh band drummer and Director of the Lowender Peran Festival in Cornwall, Andrew Morris, who has spent most of his life travelling around the Celtic nations representing Cornwall in music and dance, aside from a core, driven passion, he realised there was no single voice that cut across the continents and offered an truly inter-Celtic community space for all

What does the Celtic Link Magazine look like?

The Celtic Link magazine is a contemporary look into global Celtic culture. As well as being bang up to date, truly modern and well designed, it boasts contributing writers from four continents, award-winning journalists, designers and photographers producing a beautiful publication.

So who are we, and what we are we going to do?

We are a team of people with big ambitions. We are an innovative, multi skilled, passionately Celtic team working together to promote the cultures and traditions of all the Celtic nations.

The Celtic Link has been set up as a Community Interest Company. Our aims are to;

  • Launch a quarterly FREE digital download magazine for everyone interested in Celtic culture, creating content and features on culture, lifestyle, fashion, travel, events, music, food and drink and heritage from around the Celtic nations
  • Take Cornish music and dance back into Cornish schools and ignite a spark for all things Celtic...
  • Develop a specialised App that will offer a ‘real-time’ on-the-go portal for everyone wanting to stay connected to their Celtic roots

“We give Celts a contemporary channel in which to promote themselves, which will help attract new audiences to our precious, exciting and vibrant culture.” Andrew Morris, Founder The Celtic Link CIC

How much are we hoping to raise?

We are looking to raise £20,000.

How will we use the money?

  • Researching, writing and editing content
  • Marketing (on and offline) to help grow our readership
  • Developing our website
  • A greater presence at live events
  • Produce video interviews with bands and coverage of Celtic festivals and live events

How we will fund ourselves going forward?

  • Magazine and online advertising
  • Branded merchandise
  • Further digital and print publications

Once our first four issues are released, we will rely on advertising in the magazine and branded merchandise to cover the cost of what we do, and to generate profits to benefit the communities we serve.

Any overfunding will enable us to work towards:

  • A Print edition
  • The creation of education-centred digital resources
  • Further digital and print publications
  • The development of our Celtic Link App
