Residents of Milltimber’s Hawkhill House have been getting into the spirit of the Aberdeen International Youth Festival.

During the week, residents, staff and families have been enjoying a celebration home-grown and international talent as some of the world’s top young musicians dropped into Milltimber.

The “mini festival” kicked off on Monday, July 28, with a visit from Simunye Simunye Arts who shared some of the music, dance and theatre of Zimbabwe with Deesiders.

Simunye Simunye Arts is visiting Aberdeen for the festival.

Tuesday saw fellow AIYF visitors Blackburn with Darwen Music Service Big Band entertain residents.

The week of events is set to culminate today (Thursday )with the home’s annual garden party, which will feature more talent from the AIYF.

Hawkhill House owner and managing director Rona Tayler said: “As well as providing a performance opportunity for these young artistes, these events create an important occasion for our residents to enjoy live music.

“The much-anticipated garden party is also our chance to thank everyone who supports us throughout the year.

‘‘We are looking forward to sharing the day with our guests, including the Lord Provost of Aberdeen, George Adam.”
