REIVERS Festival organisers say it is still full steam ahead with this weekend’s action-packed programme, despite recent wintry weather forcing the

cancellation of Sunday’s walk and concert. The stage is set for the annual family event which throughout the weekend will see the town celebrate its 16th century reiving history, from the popular market and encampment at Lovel Court, drama, song and re-enactments, to the torchlit procession and fireworks display, and much more. Pupils from Drumlanrig, pictured, will be amongst the schools going up against each other on Sunday afternoon in Wilton Lodge Park in a series of games.
