The dress rehearsal for the annual 'Strictly Cabaret' fundraiser in Dumfries is taking place.
The dancing event is now in its 8th year and has raised almost £225,000 for 19 different charities.
The hugely popular fundraiser was created by Michael and Patsy Pattie, who lost their 13-year-old son David to meningitis 12 years ago.
They have been raising money ever since.
Around 300 tickets have been sold for the dress rehearsal, with the main shows being held over Friday and Saturday.
Tickets are available from Patties, 109 Queensberry Street, Dumfries.
