Aurora International Festival 2014

7th – 12th August. Aurora welcomed Dancers and Musicians from Gascony in France. Their coach finally arrived at Newmachar around 9pm after a mammoth journey from Toulouse and our guests were tired and very hungry. Luckily, Aurora are well experienced at providing a warm welcome and plenty of refreshments! Friday 8th was warm and sunny, but the weather went downhill as the remains of hurricane Bertha arrived. By the time of the coach trip to Glenfiddich and the Speyside cooperage there were extensive floods. The visit was highly successful in spite of having to make alterations to the programme due to the weather. Some Aurora members had enough energy left to wave goodbye as the coach left Newmachar at 5.30 on Tuesday morning!

Away Weekend 2014

After the success last year at Burgie House near Forres, we decided to return to the same venue this year during the weekend 21st-24th February. The weather was kind and we were able to spend many hours walking in the countryside (together with a lot of dancing, eating and games, of course). Liz and Kirsten organised an ‘assassination’ game which kept everybody on their toes!
