Exciting Programme for 2022

Well our programme for 2022 is now finalised. As in earlier years we are supporting events organised by both Aboyne Arts and Theatre Development Group and also the Tarland Food and Music Festival.

Our star event for 2022 is the return of the innovative out-door theatre company Illyria with “The Pirates of Penzance”. Who can resist Gilbert and Sullivan on a summer evening? Save Thursday 4th August at 6.30 pm on Aboyne Green for a picnic and great entertainment. The event is happening two days prior to the Aboyne Games and we are most grateful to the Games for the use of the Games Arena. Click the Skull & Crossbones below to book.

In addition we have a great programme including the Song of the Ice by Steve Garrett, chamber music at Finzean House, a bevy of authors 2022 discussing their books, Coopers Crew complete with a guest appearance of Rabbie Burns, a musical recital at Migvie Kirk and an empty coffin described in the Dunecht Outrage.

An event not to be missed is an evening at Finzean House to celebrate and support Ukraine. This includes music with both Scottish and Ukrainian themes and a buffet supper including Ukrainian dishes. The numbers that can attend are limited so please book your tickets early so avoid disappointment. All proceeds will go to the Disasters Emergency Committee's Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.
