Culture Day Forres

Culture Day Forres 2016 was a one-day cultural extravaganza taking place on Saturday  24  September as part of the biennial Findhorn Bay Festival.  Based on the successful model of Culture Night events held annually in Copenhagen, Dublin, Belfast and other European cities, Culture Day is a free, family-focused event for Moray.  It provides an opportunity for audiences of all ages, visitors and locals, to connect with the rich heritage and diverse range of arts and cultural activity that takes place in Moray throughout the year.

On Culture Day Forres 2016, Forres town Centre came alive –  alleys, cafes, pubs, artists studios, shops, bus stops, parks and playing fields, community spaces and halls burst to life with a mix of free performances, film screenings, music, poetry readings, exhibitions, talks, demonstrations, workshops and interactive events free for all the family to engage with.
