So far, the Celtic Days have comprised a number of scientific and popular-scientific talks, workshops, presentations and lectures. It has been an opportunity to host a number of scholars (Prof. Norman Davies, Prof. M. Wynn Thomas, Prof. Sabine Asmus, Prof. Andrzej Kokowski, dr Christine Jones), writers (Grahame Davies, Ifor ap Glyn, Angharad Tomos, Rhys Trimble) and musicians (David Greenslade, Jim Rowlands, Gwilym Morus, Dafydd Iwan) from Celtic countries.
The Department of Celtic Studies at KUL was founded by Professor Edmund Gussmann in 1989, the first in Eastern Europe and has been the sole organiser of the Celtic Days for twelve years. This edition will be the thirteenth held by the Department of Celtic Studies and the first held in collaboration with other institutes.
