The 36th Dumfries and Galloway Arts Festival ended its ten-day run on Sunday, and early indications show a 45 per cent rise in ticket sales from last year — with a large number of capacity audiences at events across the region.
Programme director Peter Renwick said: “The feedback from this year’s festival has been absolutely brilliant.
“We had some huge audiences for the Scottish Ensemble, Macmath – Silent Page, the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and Dogstar Theatre, right across the region.
“Many shows were complete sell-outs. We are still waiting for more information to come in but can say the 2015 festival was extremely well supported.”
