A workshop with a difference is being held in Dumfries and Galloway today, teaching people all they need to know about how to host a festival.

Emulating Wickerman Success

As well as hosting today's festival workshop, final preparations are underway for the 11th Wickerman Festival which starts on July 20th. Inspired by the 1970s movie of the same name that was filmed in Dumfries and Galloway, it's grown into one of the best attended small festivals in the country.
