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.

The committee would like to give a huge thank you to our adjudicators for the day, husband and wife Wayne Robertson and Claire Telford. Their positive comments and useful hints and tips for performance were appreciated by both the competitors and their parents and teachers. They had a mammoth task as the entry numbers…
