Amazing Summer Roadshows Back for 2023

The Amazing Summer Roadshows are returning this summer to unleash unforgettable fun across Dumfries and Galloway communities.

These events are jam-packed with activities for children, young people and their families, and are proudly funded by Dumfries and Galloway Council.

Commencing on Thursday 20 July until Sunday 20 August, the Amazing Summer Roadshows will travel across Dumfries and Galloway from Tuesday to Sunday each week, providing 100 sessions over 80 different communities over the summer. From Colvend to Kirkinner, Canonbie to St John’s Town of Dalry, Kelloholm to Port Logan, the roadshows will be delivering events so that all communities can get involved.

Chair of Dumfries and Galloway Council’s Communities Committee, Councillor Ian Blake said: “For the third year running, the Amazing Summer Roadshows are focussed on providing opportunities for children and young people throughout the summer, regardless of where they live in Dumfries and Galloway. The tour will see activities delivered in 100 different communities from remotely rural villages to our large towns.”

The Amazing Summer Roadshows are a partnership programme delivered Dumfries and Galloway Council’s Active Schools, Lifelong Learning and Youth Work Services, and supported by a wide range of partners including NHS Dumfries and Galloway, third sector organisations and community groups. Each community event lasts for three hours, with daytime sessions running 1pm to 4pm and evening sessions running 6pm to 9pm – each providing a range of activities such as crafts, sports, sports coaching, games, music, and refreshments.

Vice Chair of Dumfries and Galloway Council’s Communities Committee, Councillor Jackie McCamon said: “Sessions are free to attend and a great day out for the community, we would encourage everyone to get involved when the roadshow is in their area this summer.”
