Hundreds of people made full use of the lovely weather to enjoy this year’s Kirkcudbright Food Festival

United Kingdom News, United Kingdom Headlines

The food came courtesy of a number of Dumfries and Galloway’s finest producers, including Disco Pig and Skippers Scran Van from West Coast Sea Products, with liquid refreshment thanks to Castle Douglas’ Sulwath Brewery and gin cocktails from Newton Stewart’s Crafty Distillery.

And there was music throughout the day on the stage in Harbour Square from seven different acts, including Dumfries’ Freya Cloy and Rhelm, a group of Stewartry high school students. Kirkcudbright Summer Festivities organised the day, with chairman John Blaikie heaping praise on Kieran Chisholm in particular for his efforts.

He said: “At the beginning of the year I was going to cancel it as the person who used to do it is no longer with us.“Really it was Kieran who pulled it all together, he organised it all. It was a brilliant event. He picked it up and ran with it.“Both the food festival and light festival won’t have Kieran so I don’t know what we’re going to do.“All credit to him, he deserves all the credit.”It will be a Christmas fair with the festivities teaming up with Greyfriars Church.
