Autumn Festival

Unfortunately due to weather conditions and the forecast we have to cancel this Saturday's Autumn Festival.  We will assess next week wheather we can rearrange or not.

Save the date!

On Saturday, October 21st the we'll be holding an Autumn Festival in the Braes of Glenlivet that promises to offer something for everyone.  
Explore the fascinating history of Scalan Mills & Seminary, which will be open from 1:00pm- 4:00pm for the last open day of the season and then join us at the hall from 4:00pm for apple pressing and apple games, soup, hot drinks, and home baking. Mark Johnston, Head Ranger Glenlivet Estate will lead a easy family friendly wildlife dusk walk at 4:30pm where you can learn all about the animals that live on Glenlivet Estate.

Storyteller Nana Tumova will enchant us with seasonal and celestial stories around a campfire from 5:30pm and again at 6:30 pm. Nana is an acclaimed Traditional Oral Storyteller and a nature connection guide. She loves stories of the wild, and her favourite place to tell them is out on the land. She is the creator of the Story Apothecary Podcast, where she dispenses stories as medicine. If you would like to attend the storytelling, please arrive a few minutes before each session.

As day turns to night, our local astronomy group will host telescope and stargazing sessions for all ages and abilities. Come along for an introduction to the constellations, enjoy a laser guided sky tour or try out our community telescope. If it is cloudy on the night there will be an indoor presentation in the hall.

All events are free and are on a drop-in basis and are open to all (apart from the wildlife dusk walk) that can be pre-booked in advance for free at Eventbrite.

If you would like to volunteer on the day to have a go on the apple press, games, or set up, please also get in touch with as it would be lovely to have a few extra hands on the day . Thanks!
