Annan History Town Summer Festival is in Good Hands

Annan the History Town Festival will be going ahead this year thanks to funding from Dumfries and Galloway Council’s Coastal Benefit Fund. The grant has enabled Annan the History Town Group to employ professional staff to make sure the event runs smoothly and safely under COVID rules.

Chairman of the Group, Richard Brodie explained: “We have been able to obtain the services of two excellent individuals whose skills will complement each other. Co-Director Graeme MacGregor has decades of experience as DNG Media’s Sales & Marketing Director and organised the “Out and About” afternoon for the Riding of the Marches festivities. Fellow Co-Director Kathleen Cronie is a leading light in the iconic Mostly Ghostly Tours and initiated the Festival of Folklore in Upper Nithsdale.”

Kathleen Cronie enthused, “I’m delighted to be working with the Annan the History Town Initiative, to bring alive an exciting new summer festival, celebrating the town’s history, heritage, characters and culture. We aim for the festival to attract locals and visitors alike, to discover the town, and immerse themselves in Annan’s rich history.”

Graeme MacGregor endorsed this with: “The Summer Festival is the ideal opportunity to showcase Annan, its history and traditions. I look forward to working with local groups to provide a wide range of activities and welcome ideas for events for our July/August programme.“
