Findhorn Bay Festival to return with ten day celebration for Scotland’s Year of Stories

Findhorn Bay Arts’ award-winning flagship festival will return this autumn with a ten-day celebration of arts and culture for Scotland’s Year of Stories.

Supported by EventScotland as part of the Year of Stories 2022, The 4th Findhorn Bay Festival will offer a journey of exploration and discovery, offering glimpses into the past and hopes for the future, and experiences of nature, culture and adventure.

From Friday 23 September to Sunday 2 October 2022, communities in Moray and beyond will have a unique chance to celebrate and appreciate Scotland’s stories, heritage, landscape and people.

Set in unexpected spaces and scenic locations, the Festival will bring together a vibrant mix of outstanding Scottish art, theatre and performance, storytelling and live music, alongside celebrations of food and drink, family-friendly events and a whole host of open and accessible creative activities.

The organisation’s flagship festival will run over ten days in celebration of the 10th anniversary of the organisation’s establishment by Founder, Creative Director and CEO Kresanna Aigner.

Full details of the Festival programme will be announced later this year.

Kresanna Aigner, Festival Director and Creative Director / CEO of Findhorn Bay Arts, said: “I am delighted to announce that we will be back with the 4th Findhorn Bay Festival this year.

“After the disappointment of having to cancel the Festival back in 2020 – absolutely the right thing to do to keep our audiences and communities safe at the height of the pandemic – we want to come back with a strong Festival programme, but one which acknowledges the post-Covid era we are living in.

“We’ll be celebrating 10 years since the establishment of Findhorn Bay Arts with high quality arts programming, several showcase events, community events and activities – and one or two big surprises.

“It is certain to be a bittersweet moment, as we recognise how much has changed for everyone over the past two years.

“We’ll be making more announcements about our full festival programme very soon – so please save the date and watch this space for further updates.”
