Hawick Reivers Festival

Hawick – 22nd to 24th March 2024

Step back in time to the mid-sixteenth century when the Borderlands were an area of constant feuding – when loyalties were to kinship rather than king and country and when “Reiving” was a means of survival.

Through music, drama and re-enactments experience what life was really like for the men and women in the Border Marches.

Hawick Reivers Festival aims to help visitors and townsfolk alike Experience, Explore and will endeavour to Explain day-to-day life in this violent and turbulent period of our history.

Fiercely loyal and independent, hard-working and prepared to fight for what they believed in these men and women of the 1500’s did much to shape the character of the modern-day Borderers.

Newcastleton Traditional Music Festival

5th-7th July 2024

Since its beginning in 1970, the Newcastleton Traditional Music Festival has provided a space for musicians, singers, poets and storytellers to come and share their love of traditional culture.

2024 will see the return of our much-loved Opening Concert and ceilidh dance, alongside the continuation of the usual competitions, workshops and sessions. And of course the festival wouldn’t be complete without the brilliant and ancient Copshaw Common Riding.

Denholm Folk Festival

Thursday 2nd November to Sunday 5th November

This small but perfectly formed festival has gained a great reputation for quality.

A small village set in the Teviot valley with two pubs, a church, a village hall and a very interesting new primary school, Denholm overflows with great music during this weekend.

The programme consists of Friday and Saturday concerts and late evenings at the Festival Club. (Artists to be announced). Plus a free, church concert on the Sunday, all make for a fantastic weekend – not to mention the continual sessions..
