The 3rd Findhorn Bay Festival presented a spectacular six-day celebration of arts and culture for Scotland’s Year of Young People 2018.
Showcasing artists of national and international renown, from 26 September to 1 October 2018 performances and events took place in unexpected spaces and scenic locations.
The Festival offered a vibrant mix of theatre and performance, exhibitions and live music, fine-art and photography, talks and tours, local food, family events, the natural landscape and free activities, including Scotland’s only Culture Day extravaganza in Forres.
A new and unique theatre piece based on the Scottish literary work The Buke of the Howlat was premiered during the Festival. A shrewd and curious tale written in Older Scots in the 1440s at Darnaway Castle in Moray was performed in a stunning outdoor setting, and the performance brought to life through an intergenerational choir, dancers and circus performers, actors and visual installations.
