The Spiegeltent is returning to the festival, as the blueprint for the seventh event also reveals plans for two new strands.
The quirky entertainment venue will return to the Whitesands car park alongside a brand new festival village with additional bars and fringe performance spaces, themed around a brand new Winter Garden concept.
A range of shows are already on sale, including festival favourites Le Haggis, High Tea and Burns Night Live, and the festival has also introduced allocated seating in some areas so that customers can get to sit exactly where they want.
Dumfries Comedy Festival will meanwhile take place at the Easterbrook Hall throughout the festival, with a host of names expected to be announced in the coming months.
And Dumfries Fringe Festival will connect smaller venues to the main festival programme.
The Electric Theatre Workshop run the festival, and executive producer Graham Main said: “We have listened to our audience who made it very clear that the Spiegeltent reflects the intimate character of both Dumfries and the Big Burns Supper, which makes our job of creating an amazing winter festival much easier.”
The Big Burns Supper Festival runs from January 18 to 28 next year.
