Welcome to The Gaitherin! PDF Print E-mail

The GaitherinThe Gaitherin is a festival of music and drama based on today's traditions of the North East of Scotland, and is open to young people from Central Aberdeenshire.

Since its inception in 1993, with one Easter Gaitherin for school-age children, the Gaitherin has grown in popularity and there are now two Gaitherins per Year - one at Easter for Primary 4-7 pupils and one in October for Secondary school students.

There are also various one and two day workshops throughout the year.

One of the main reasons for the enthusiasm with which the young people embrace the Gaitherin is the contemporary approach to the traditional culture, the energy and commitment of the Tutors and Youth Workers and the fact that the participants help guide their own tuition.

The Participants, and the tutors, love The Gaitherin and they want it to keep going.

With your support, we hope that The Gaitherin can grow to offer more tuition to more young people - and possibly even adults!
