We are about to set off on our annual music festival which has now gathered a large following and this year will be every bit is entertaining as previous years. The standard is very high, the hospitality is great and the value is exceptional!

The Alive & Kicking Festival kicks off with a Quiz Night at The Railway Hotel on Thursday 25th July. We then have our ever-popular Folk Night on Friday 26th July. This year, it will feature a terrific mix of three artists: The Mairs Family Bluegrass Band, Ciaran McGhee and Davie Hunter.

For the Tribute Night on Saturday 3rd August, we welcome back The Jersey Tones, who are making a return by special request with a different format from the fantastic show last year.

The our schedule of great events continues into the Autumn with our Gala Day, Hoolie @ The Knowe taking place on Sunday 8th September. We are looking forward being joined again by great local musicians, Mark Mcmillan and Brian Hunter.

We recommend that you get your tickets early as the interest is high. You can read much more about each event in the brochures (available soon at local shops) and we anticipate another successful festival.
