Announcing the 10th Braemar Creative Arts Festival Oct 23rd -31st 2021

            This year the workshops and classes will be spread over nine days instead of the usual five, in order to reduce numbers visiting on any one day.  A range of art, craft, dance, music, drama and creative writing activities will be on the programme.  All details will be announced on the ‘Braemar Creative Arts Festival’ Facebook page in early October or to get in touch email

            And of course, running alongside the festival will be the

Knitwits’ customary annual trail.  The theme this year: ‘2021: A Space Odyssey’ which promises to be out of this world… (see photo left!)  There will be real and imagined space themed knits including planets, Dr Who, Star Wars and Star Trek…  The trail will be in place 16th - 30th October with maps to download and online sales of the knitted delights! 

            Activity in Braemar  begins to return to something more akin to normal after Covid lockdowns.  For club news, see page 7.  For  a nifty website with the latest information on local Covid infection rates, see page 6.
