Welcome to the Festival Fringe 

DEESIDE KNITWITS Knitted trail Monday 9th – Saturday 21st Oct 2017

Trolls have existed on this planet for as long as humans and in Norway, where most trolls make their home, they nestle in the high peaks of mountains near the Fjords causing quite a nuisance for the farmers and peasants because most trolls are just mean and nasty! This year trolls have overrun Braemar village!

So, our knitted map trail and quiz will be a Troll Hunt for all to enjoy. There will be some pretty scary monsters for the children to find around the village with maps available at the usual outlets – taste.., the Sweetie Shop and Wild Thistle from 9th – 21st October. Our knitted nonsense will then be on sale at the Braemarket on Sunday 22nd October.

Return your map to enter the prize draw on Sunday at the Braemarket where all the knitting will be on sale, with the proceeds supporting local charities.
