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.

The latest talk tomorrow at Banff Castle is Aberlour Orphanage by Ron Aitchison
Aberlour was the best-known orphanage in the North of Scotland. Large institutions are no longer seen as the best way to look after children, so nowadays the Aberlour Childcare Trust does good work in dispersed more family-size homes. But the memory of the big orphanage remains. Ron Aitchison was brought up in Aberlour Orphanage. Some may have seen his ‘From Aberlour Orphanage to the BBC’, or a recent article in Knock News. Now back in the village of Aberlour, he is a leading light of the Aberlour Heritage Centre.
The fee per talk is just £3.00
