The Borders are renowned for their creativity... and one town in particular has just been recognised by Creative Scotland.
Peebles has been awarded a cash prize to spend on events in the town - and, naturally, they plan to spend it creatively - as Jenny Longden reports.
General Manager of the Eastgate Theatre in Peebles, Caroline Adam, put together the bid for Peebles in the Creative Places Award.
She speaks to our reporter Jenny Longden.
A cash prize for a creativity award for Peebles will be spend on a series of monthly art festivals in the town.
Peebles has won an award for being the most creative place of its size in Scotland, along with £100,000.
Those behind the bid plan to spend it on a creative action plan running from March to December.
Each month will concentrate on a particular theme, such as music, literature or crafts.
The programme will also work with festivals already held in the town, such as the Arts Festival and the TweedLove biking festival.
