Bygone Borderlands Celebration 2014 - 10am to 4pm on 6 and 7 September

It's an event for children and adults  - a weekend long celebration of Border heritage and history, reflecting on last year’s commemoration of the 500th Anniversary of the Battle of Flodden.

It takes place at The Haining, Selkirk from 10am to 4pm on 6 and 7 September.

As well as Borders Family History Society, there’ll be displays by Berwick Record Office, the Hawick Heritage Hub, Jedburgh Grammar School, primary schools in Hawick, Lilliesleaf and Selkirk; an arts and crafts tent, a storytelling and quill writing tent, and a tent for talks and music. Refreshments will be for sale, too.

I hope they don't run out of quills, I calculated last night that it's more than 50 years since I last used a quill pen, in earnest, at primary school.

Programme of talks and music:

Please note: There’s room only for disabled parking (blue badge holders) at The Haining, so they’re asking people to park at Selkirk High School (enter from Hillside Terrace) and there’ll be a free shuttle bus to take visitors to and from the Haining.

Admission is free, so we hope that you’ll all come and see us sometime this weekend.
