Findhorn Bay Arts Director Kresanna Aigner said “the whole team are thrilled that the Findhorn Bay Festival is a finalist in the Cultural Awards.  Just to be a finalist alone and recognised nationally for the success of the Festival is fantastic for the event and for promoting Moray as a go-to cultural destination.”

The winner will be revealed along with the other Culture Awards finalists at a star-studded awards ceremony on Thursday 13 July 2017 at SWG3, Glasgow announced by renowned host Janice Forsyth.
