Council funding to arrive too late

With funding from D&G Council already guaranteed to be at least 43% down on the previous year, following removal of the Major Events Strategic Fund, it came as a huge blow to discover that any funding the event does receive this year, which isn't guaranteed, won't arrive in time for July's event.

Tae Robert Burns

This time last year we celebrated Robert Burns with Dumfries singer Rose Byers and fantastic local piper Karen Keenan, live at The Vault Arts Centre. We would dearly love to be doing that again right now. Until we can again, have a happy Burns night and we’ll raise a dram together soon we hope x
