Big Burns Supper reveals line up

SEVENTIES’ icons Sister Sledge have joined the line up for the rescheduled Big Burns Supper (BBS) this summer.

They will perform at the Loreburn Hall on June 24, alongside Skerryvore.

Other new acts confirmed this week include the Peatbog Faeries and comedians Russell Kane and Rich Hall.

Four weekends of events are planned at the Loreburn Hall between April and June to cover the postponed BBS, including Diamond Jubilee celebrations on June 3-4.

And Dumfries Carnival has been rescheduled to instead take place on Guid Nychburris Day, June 18. It will be a chance for hundreds of schoolchildren to finally present their carnival costumes on the town’s streets as part of 3000 performers. It all starts on April 29 with a range of tribute bands, including The Complete Stone Roses, Simple Minded, Abba Revival and The Bob Marley Experience.

A Guid Nychburris Special is planned for June 17-19 with Russell Kane and Rosie Jones and a family event.

There’s a packed programme for the final weekend, with Rich Hall, Colonel Mustard and the Dijon 5 and Stanley Odd alongside the headliners.

Tickets for all events go on sale on Wednesday morning.
