“To be kept in it’s natural idiom for all time”
Gavin Greig M.A.
The Society was founded in March 1984 by our Founder President Mr James M Duncan, in order to keep alive in a fast changing world all the old and true traditions of Buchan in Music, Song, Verse, Drama and Olde Tyme Dance.
Since 1984 the Strichen Festival has continued to grow with old friends returning each year to compete and entertain, maintaining a high standard and each year adding new friends to compliment our friendly and enthusiastic organisation.
September sees our Young Entertainers Competition giving an opportunity for the younger generation to use their talents in order to keep our North East traditions in music, song and verse alive.
The magazine reflects the year of events within the society, the festival results and a platform for budding local writers as well as a medium for north east exiles and Buchan folk alike with an intersting story to tell. The magazine is published in May.
