In August 2012 Aurora hosted a visit by the
Groupe Folklorique du Pays de Hanau from Bouxwiller in Alsace. We loved their colourful costumes and lively performances when we made our trip to Alsace in 2011 and we were delighted when they accepted our invitation to perform in Aberdeen.
The highlight of their visit was a ceilidh at the Forum on Friday 10th August.
On Saturday 11th August shoppers at Union Square enjoyed performances which also featured displays of Scottish dancing by members of Aurora, accompanied by the Aurora ceilidh band.
Sunday 12th August saw the group head to Crathes Castle where their performance attracted an appreciative audience.
