Buchan Heritage Festival

Held over a weekend in May, usually following the third Wednesday, the Buchan Heritage Festival at Strichen celebrates the Doric and the traditions of the North East of Scotland through song, verse, storytelling, drama, dance and music.

It commences with a pre-festival dance at the Ritchie Hall with further evening music ranging from fiddles to accordions during the Saturday prize winners concert and a lively Ceilidh.

The main day is Saturday with events such as schools' competitions, singing, bothy ballad and Doric storytelling and verse taking place with entrants from all corners of Buchan.

At the Royal British Legion Hall, there is a farewell Ceilidh.
