Aurora International Festival 2012

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. More photographs from the festival can be found here.
