The programme of Selkirk’s September Yes Festival will be revealed at an open launch at The County Hotel at 6pm today (Friday).
The four-day arts line-up, which runs from September 12-15, includes Scotland’s National Makar Liz Lochhead performing her own poetry and a masterclass for local writers, “Plays and Platters”, at The County Hotel by four Border theatre companies, and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra playing Sally Beamish’s new work to commemorate Flodden.
Local and national artists will also exhibit in venues including the Haining, 1 Tower Street, N0 48, WASPS studios and Kirkshope Hall, which also hosts a Final Festival Ceilidh, with a Summer Music Session at the Gordon Arms, Yarrow.
Rosie Kay’s “Haining Dreaming” – performances of the house’s stories and history by local community dancers and musicians – will take place on three nights during the festival.
