An arts event has celebrated ancient trading routes of the historical port and market place of Wigtown as part of the Book Festival.
The celebration, on the 27th September, saw people travelling to the town by different methods of transport. Horses and carts, boats and cyclists made their way to the event for a parade and surprise performance in the evening.
Events included drumming workshops, spoon crafting and flag making.
"We became very aware that the festival’s organisation involved a lot of travelling to and from different places and how the journeys became part of the art experience.
Trading Journeys is a chance to celebrate Wigtown’s historical importance as a trading hub and pilgrim route. By bringing different people into town using diverse forms of transport, each separate element is fused into one musing.”
