It’s that time of year again, the arts and events brochure for May 2011 has been finalised and made available to patrons of the Arts Festival and the general public via the website. The events are being added to the website and the event calendar is being updated – as with all performance related ventures, there are always details and amendments up until the last minute so everyone involved is kept busy.
The itinerary this year features the Community day in Dumfries (Dock Park) where there will be a range of events over the weekend. As usual there are events throughout the region in the more rural areas, and some more traditional art events for the connoisseurs of drama, music, literature and theatre.
The children’s events are also strong this year with poetry, puppetry and dance workshops. It’s incredible how many agencies are involved in bringing the festival to life – let’s hope it exceeds expectations this year.
