Aurora has hosted a number of International Festivals of Traditional Dance and Music over the years, with visitors from a variety of countries.  These festivals offer an opportunity to showcase traditional dance and music from Scotland and abroad, as well as offering members of the public the opportunity to experience these traditions. They allow Aurora and our guests the opportunity to share our cultures and make new friends.

Our past events are detailed below; links are provided to descriptions and photographs.


In return we have been invited to spend time with groups across Europe, enabling us to share traditional Scottish music and dancing with a wide audience, and to get to know our counterpart groups in other regions. These festival opportunities are typically reciprocal, and the majority of the groups we have visited have come to us in Aberdeen, or will do in future.
