Three festivals are to take place in Annandale and Eskdale later this year, beginning next month, Dumfries and Galloway council has announced.
The Pack Up Your Troubles Festival,which will be held from 28th to 31st August, will feature a weekend of events based on World War One, to celebrate the 100th birthday of twins Gretna and Eastriggs.
The first of the three festivals will include an old-style music hall evening, a World War One tearoom, classic bus tours, concerts, cooking demonstrations, educational workshops and various community events.
The International Sheep Dog Trials 2015 will take place the following month, on 10th to 12th September, at Meikleholm Farm, between Moffat and Dumfries.
Around 10,000 people are expected to turn out to see the world's most highly skilled dogs and handlers compete for the championship titles.
The Lockerbie Jazz Festival celebrates its 10th anniversary with concerts in Lockerbie, Moffat, Annan and Gretna. US jazz singer Melba Joyce and musician Stephanie Trick will appear in concerts as part of the event.
Singer Ruby Turner is also due to perform in Lockerbie and Gretna.
The three events are being fully backed by £45,000 of council funding as part of Dumfries and Galloway Council’s Major Festivals and Events Strategy which will provide £750,000 funding to events projects between 2014 and 2017.
