Banchory Festival is over for another year and the festival team would like to thank everyone who contributed to a fantastic day of music making. Please see the Festival 2023 page for the results.
We are pleased to announce that we will be able to hold the annual Banchory Festival of Scottish Music this year. The Festival will be on Saturday 13th May and will be held at our new venue: Royal British Legion, Ravenswood, 25 Ramsay Road, Banchory AB31 5TS. The online entry form for the festival competitions can be found on our Festival 2023 page.
Strathspey and Reel Society resumes practices on Thursday 25th August. Juniors will be from 7pm till 7.45pm and Seniors are from 7.45pm till 9pm. We have moved our practices to Banchory British Legion, Ravenswood Country Club, 25 Ramsay Road, Banchory. We are looking forward to having our practices there from now on! You are all welcome to come along to the practices on Thursday evenings. New members are always very welcome.
It is with regret that we have had to take the difficult decision to cancel the Banchory Festival of Scottish Music for 2022. Covid restrictions are still making it difficult for us to ensure that we can host a comfortable, safe and successful day for everyone.
We will be re-starting Strathspey and Reel Society practices again this Thursday 20th January. We will continue with the sign in sheet and weekly photograph of Juniors and Seniors for track and trace purposes and mask wearing for any person over 12 years old (unless exempt). Looking forward to seeing you all on Thursday.
We have decided that we will not be able to practice this week (13th January) because of the new guidance from the Scottish Government which started on the 27th of December. We will keep you updated by email, on our Facebook page, and on our website when we have more information.
Happy New Year! We had hoped to resume practices on Thursday 6th January 2022 but we have decided to cancel until we get a clearer picture of what is allowed with the new restrictions. We hope to resume practices on Thursday 13th January 2022. We will keep members updated.
It is with regret that we will be unable to hold the Banchory Festival of Scottish Music in 2021. The current COVID-19 restrictions means that we are able to plan for this event.
It is with regret that we have decided to cancel the 2020 Banchory Festival of Scottish Music. This was planned for Saturday 9th May. This has been a difficult decision but has been taken in light of the Coronavirus recommendations.
The Banchory Festival of Scottish Music 2020 will be held on Saturday 9th May. The main venue will be The Burnett Arms Hotel, High Street, Banchory. An entry form for the festival competitions can be found here.
