Awards for All Success
The festival has received a ten thousand pound grant from the lottery's 'Awards for All' scheme. This funding is crucial for the event as it moves from being an ad-hoc 'get-together' for locals, into the full blown music event it is becoming.
Because of this funding the festival can attract more and bigger bands and can meet the increasingly stringent health and safety and licencing legislation, meaning it can continue providing benefits to the rural community of the Upper Tweed.
The funding has allowed us to purchase a transportable stage, professional sound equipment and outdoor seating. This equipment brings additional benefits as it will be available for use by the whole community throughout the year.
