A spokes person for the team at Eastrbrook Live Told DGWGO entertainment news “By the end of the year our dedicated team was established to drive the ‘Easterbrook Live’ initiative.We reviewed the requirements to unlock Easterbrook Hall’s full potential as a live events venue. Following this review, we have carried out refurbishment of our main auditorium balcony – previously out of service for over 15 years. This has increased our capacity, allowing us to host a wide variety of high-profile acts. We have also increased our technical specification, this will encourage more touring performers to the region and ensure the highest quality experience for the audience.

We are not only interested in larger acts. Local and community artists and promoters are very important to us, this year we will be hosting Dumfries and Galloway Arts festivals opening opera among others. The flexibility of our venues allows for all manner of events, from intimate gigs to full-blown concerts.
We want to encourage the people of Dumfries and Galloway to enjoy what the Crichton has to offer; Stunning public grounds, exceptional food or world-class entertainment.”

Team DGWGO Loved the show , and would also like to thank the Easterbrook team and staff for their hospitality and kindness. Easterbrook Hall truly is a fantastic events venue, and with shows of this caliber being brought to the region, people will come from far and wide to make the most of the facilities that Easterbrook and the rest of our region have to offer.
