In today’s episode we are meeting with Vivien Rae who has a professional and personal passion for tourism in the North East of Scotland. Not only does Vivien work as marketing guru for several events and tourism related businesses she also dedicates a large portion of her time to volunteering on a variety of committees which put on events in the North East.
Vivien shares with us what she loves about festivals and the many opportunities we have to learn something new about our past. Keeping traditional stories and skills alive is an important part of sharing our heritage and the chance to get together to socialise is integral too. The recent move to virtual events is a positive one, and Vivien believes in some ways it is a wonderful chance to share our heritage with people who dream of visiting Scotland..
The last few months have also meant more people are becoming visitors in their own areas and rediscovering their part of Scotland and seeing what they have with a fresh perspective.
