OTHERLAND will be a separate festival within a festival. Co-designed with young people from all over the Highlands to create an alternative world in which youthful imagination is indulged and enabled to run as free as possible. There are co-design workshops happening just now but share your views and ideas online too:

Also, we have another co-design workshop confirmed for 31 March here:

Dear Bella fans. We hear a lot of lovely stories from you out there. Sometimes we like to share them with everyone. Here’s one we received recently from Lauren Hay and her family in Aberdeenshire which sums up what Bella is all about (thank you Lauren and we hope you have a wonderful trip):

"My boyfriend and I from Aberdeenshire and in October quit our day jobs to live our day dream and go travelling. We document the tales (and fails) from our travels on our blog However, despite the sunsets and coconuts we are rather gutted to be missing Belladrum this year due to backpacking Australia. Excluding Christmas it is the only other time of year that brings my entire family (including granny!) in one place at the same time. So many unbeatable memories have been created thanks to you guys!

To celebrate what would have been my 10th year I put together our highlights from over the years to inspire others to celebrate Bella and dance their socks off on our behalf. From Bella veterans to Bella virgins we published a wee guide on our travel blog with our tips from over the years -

We would be incredibly grateful if it was at all possible to share our post, or simply take a peek to provide a giggle or two on your Monday morning. Keep up the fabulous work and fingers crossed BBC ALBA works in Oz so we can watch the highlights!"

Dear Bella People. We are looking for donations of any old brass musical instruments, drums, cymbals, the odd battered squeezebox etc that are beyond repair which we can use to make a sculpture.

If you have any you can part with, please email – we can arrange pick-up within the Highlands but even better you can post them to Claire Lyall, c/o Phoineas House, By Beauly, Inverness-shire IV4 7BA.

No geetars or fiddles please.
