Twelve festivals in Dumfries and Galloway are set to receive £250,000 of events funding.
The money will come from the Council’s Major Events Strategic Fund, and Councillors will be asked to approve it at the Policy and Resources committee next week.
The festivals that could benefits from the funding are:

- Lockerbie Jazz Festival

The council says the money will help to deliver successful events and thus provide significant economic benefits for the local economy.
