Six days of summer fun

SIX days of activities and entertainment for young people will be taking place across Nithsdale later this summer - and X Factor stars will take centre stage.

Thanks to Youth Beatz Fringe, organised by the Council’s community learning and development service, there will be different events running in Lincluden, Lochside, Sanquhar and Kirkconnel.
X Factor 2012 star Lucy Spraggan will perform at Maxwelltown High School on August 1 and fellow X Factor man Nicholas McDonald will play at the Crawick Multiverse on August 6 as part of the Fringe event.
Excited to come to Dumfries, Lucy said: “I’ve been really lucky to perform at the venues I have in my career so far, but I’m really looking forward to performing at Youth Beatz Fringe.
“I’ve heard it’s a brilliant show to perform at, and it’s always a thrill to perform in front of Scottish crowds.”
Provost of Dumfries Councillor Ted Thompson said: “The Youth Beatz Fringe continues to go from strength to strength. I hope that the young people of Nithsdale get out and support the six days of events in their local area.”
It all kicks off on Saturday August 1 in Dumfries town centre with Urban Day from, followed by Lucy Spraggan live in concert that night.
A range of events from rollar discos to family fun days and talent shows are also on the cards.
All the events for Youth Beatz Fringe 2015 are free and no ticket is required.
