Welcome to Eastgate Theatre and Arts Centre Peebles
Fri 24 August – Sun 2 September 2018
This year’s festival launches with the traditional Open Galleries evening on Friday 24 August when fifteen galleries, studios and workshops (even a few shops!) throw open their doors between 6.30 and 9pm to exhibit the extraordinary wealth of visual arts and crafts created in and around Peebles. As well as original art, people following the arts trail on the Open Galleries evening are sure to encounter a few treats and surprises.
Meanwhile, the Eastgate is the main performance venue staging comedy, music, talks, films and … The Lady Boys of Bangkok! Other venues include Kailzie Gardens, Neidpath Castle and Peebles Hydro Ballroom where the first weekend is brought to a close with Take to the Floor, a glamorous evening of dance.
Explorers are invited out and about to discover secret things, encounter scary things, laugh at improbable stories and delight in beautiful gardens and the Borders countryside.
