Next year the Keswick Mountain Festival will be held in June, rather than May.
The event, which draws mountaineers and adventurers from all around the world, will take place from 8 to 11 June 2017.
Organisers say they've chosen the new date because "there is a greater chance of it being warmer for camping, warmer for swimming and lighter for partying in the evenings".
They say the size of the campsite is also increasing, and there will be space for caravans next year.
Children of all ages are being encouraged to take part in the Big Draw Festival which takes place in Dumfries today.
It's the third time the event is being held at Moat Brae House, where J.M Barrie drew inspiration from to pen his famous novel 'Peter Pan'.
The festival features a number of creative activities led by artist and young entrepreneur Rachael Speedie.
The theme for this year is Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths.
“We hope lots of people will drop in to Moat Brae for this event where science and space meet stories and sketches. We’ll provide the glitter, glue, pens and paper, and ask you to use your imagination to add your own creations to our giant mobile in the starlight dome.
"We are hoping for some surprises as well as the usual planets, planes, birds, butterflies, kites, balloons, helicopters, rainbows, fairies, Peter Pans, rockets, space stations, galaxies and black-holes…”
Entry to the event is free and it runs from 11am until 3pm.
