Ellisland Gets Set For Family Funday This Weekend

The cream of local youth music talent will play at the home of Auld Lang Syne at Ellisland’s family fun day this Saturday 11am to 3pm.

Spectrum, a group of young traditional musicians from across Dumfries and Galloway led by local teacher Barbara Lewis, will play in the barn built by the poet Robert Burns in 1788.

The Summer Fun day includes traditional games, face painting and nature trails.

Funds raised will support the museum and historic site. There will be tea,  coffee and home baking for sale and museum tours will go ahead as normal.

The Fun Day is a repeat of a successful event held last summer and is made possible through funding from The Holywood Trust.

Spectrum will perform from 1.30pm at the Fun Day.

Families are invited to bring their own picnics to enjoy.

Caitlin MacLeod, museum development lead at Ellisland said: ‘The event this year will feature a nature theme and the activities will highlight the biodiversity and beautiful landscapes we have on our doorstep! Visitors can expect a family friendly atmosphere and entertainment for people of all ages.’
