About us


BCAF 2016, the fifth annual festival, was the biggest and busiest yet. Work will begin on BCAF 2017 soon after the new year, and many thanks are due to Creative Scotland Open Funding, and Foundation Scotland for their generous support this year which enabled our project to continue to grow in all directions.

Braemar is a village of 400 residents, over 50 miles from the nearest cities with no theatre, cinema, museum, or library on our doorstep. What it does have is stunning scenery, an interesting history, and a community of talented people eager to broaden their horizons in a variety of creative pursuits. This is the fertile soil in which the germ of an idea to hold a creative arts festival was planted.

After winning the Inspiring Aberdeenshire Best of Marr Award 2015 our the plans for the 2016 Festival are more ambitious and far reaching than ever. . .

There will be Music workshops, Arts and Crafts workshops, Drama and Literature workshops and a Festival Fringe featuring evening events, the Braemarket and the Deeside Knitwits.

Watch this space and check out our FaceBook page for updates.

Later in the year we will publish the details of all the classes, workshops and fringe events due to take place between Wednesday 19 and Sunday 23rd October 2016.

Put the dates in your diary – We look forward to welcoming you all to the 2016 Festival!

The Braemar Creative Arts Festival team is very grateful to Awards for All for their support in 2014 and 2015.
