In October 2012 and 2013, I had the honour of teaching at the Braemar Arts Festival. This is such an amazing event – completely organised and run by the locals of this small highland village. The atmosphere of the festival has absolutely none of the pretensions many of the larger book and arts festivals have managed to acquire. So, it was no surprise when they were awarded a Scotland Epic Award.
Congratulations to all those who put the festival together, you truly are Epic.
