Dumfries town centre will still be the centre of the celebration – but it is hoped the new addition will increase the footfall of the festival into the future


A free shuttle bus will run during peak times from the Easterbrook Hall into the town centre to connect audiences with the programme across the rest of Dumfries.


Burns Night Carnival will return to the High Street on 22nd January which will see a community cast of thousands present a reworking of Tam O’Shanter.  It will be the first time that Big Burns Supper has used a Burns theme in the Carnival.


Entering its sixth year – a stack of new venues are going to present shows and events at the Festival for the first time, including the recently revamped Theatre Royal and the brand new Stove building which sits on the town’s High Street.
