Fun and sun on cards for two neighbouring towns

AN EXCITING weekend packed with events is on the cards for Lockerbie and Lochmaben.

ROCK THE LOCH . . . the first ever Rock the Loch takes place this Sunday

A legendary techno dance group are coming to Lockerbie tomorrow and and have enlisted the support of local up and coming DJs to add to their line-up.

Hit makers The Time Frequency, commonly known as TTF, are set to grace the town hall thanks to the efforts of local events group Junction 17.

Junction 17’s Pogo Patterson said: “We have not only got the town talking, but the whole country and beyond.

“J17 are over the moon to say Scottish dance act The Time Frequency will be performing live at Lockerbie Town Hall.”

For Pogo, it’s a dream come true.

He said: “On a personal note I’ve always wanted to bring a band to Lockerbie who has had top 40 hits.

“And the TTF fits that bill, they have five UK top 40 hits including a top 10 hit. To get them to come to our wee town is something J17 should be proud of.

“Not only that, we will also be giving local DJs the chance to support such a huge act. All in all it’s shaping up to be biggest event we’ve ever done.”

Also on the bill is well known DJ Rankin and local acts DJ Catty, DJ Graeme Bell and TJay, who are delighted to be supporting such a well known Scottish group.

And Sunday will be a big day for the royal burgh’s Crown Hotel when they host the town’s first ever music festival.

Six bands are set to ‘Rock the Loch’ next month thanks to publican Lorraine Carruthers and her festival organising team of Craig and Lynne Clark and Jo Blain.

Music fans will be treated to the musical stylings of six local bands – Golden Ratio, huggy bear, Bogle Mufty, The Abstracts, Wired and Chasin The Train.

Food will also be on sale to help complete the festival atmosphere.

And Sunday night also plays host to a another, more calm, musical event – Lockerbie Gala’s Songs of Praise.

The event, held at Lockerbie’s Dryfesdale Parish Church, begins at 6.30 pm.
