Banff Castle Community and Arts Facilities is in a town centre location, with perfectly proportioned Georgian Spaces created by John Adam, and a bit of contemporary creative thinking which can provide a Rolls Royce Community facility for everyone to enjoy.
For 60 years the Association has lived with the legacy of its founding fathers: 4 letting rooms in place of the 600 seat theatre and 250 seat restaurant it envisioned for the town.
Today we revisit their vision in an attempt to create a destination venue where residents and visitors can enjoy opportunities to take part in a wide range of cultural activities.
As a 'not for profit' community charity that does not receive any core funding for daily management, we very much appreciate your subscriptions and/or donations in support of our work.
To contact us please either e mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), call (01261 815325) or send a letter (Banff Castle, Castle Street, Banff, AB45 1DL). We look forward to hearing from you!

On Tuesday February 3rd at 2pm, Mr Alistair Mason will talk about 'The Alternatives - The Jacobite Succession'
We all know that after King James V11 of Scotland and 11 of England was put off the throne in 1688, his son and grandson carried on claiming the throne, the Jacobite Pretenders. But after them who were the rightful kings and queens?
You will be guided through their history, with pictures, right to the present day and you can consider whether they woud have made a worthwhile alternative to what we got.......

On Tuesday January 27th at 2pm, Mrs Jean Hood will talk about 'Burns and Friends'.
We tend to think of Robert Burns as always 'tumbling in the hay', but actually he spent a lot of time talking and writing to ladies who had no intention of doing things like that! Mrs Hood thought that if she said 'Burns and his Lady Friends', we would still think about tumbling in the hay!
