Dandara East Scotland has donated £200 to support the much-loved Dalkeith Festival for the second year running.

Held on Saturday 5th of August from 1pm at Kings Park, the funds will play a pivotal role in financing an array of activities, promising an unforgettable experience at the event, which is held just a short distance away from Dandara’s Eskbank Gardens development.

The exciting event will boast a fun fair, captivating performances by local young musicians and dancers, delightful pony rides, and face painting.

Margot Russell, Secretary of Dalkeith Festival Committee, said: “We are absolutely delighted to host the festival again this summer. It's heartwarming to see the community coming together, especially during these tough times when many families have been facing challenges due to the cost-of-living crisis.

“Events like this play a vital role in bringing cheer, offering a small respite and a sense of togetherness. We are hugely grateful to Dandara and all our sponsors, as their generous donations make it possible for us to continue hosting this cherished event, which holds such a special place in the hearts of our community."

“We hope that everyone has a brilliant time and that some of our residents at Eskbank Gardens manage to make it along to enjoy the fun!”
