Midlothian’s Big Weekend 2

Thursday September 10th 2015


Thousands of music lovers and families looking for a fun day out are expected to descend on Dalkeith Country Park over the weekend for celebrations marking the end to Midlothian’s annual arts festival, Midfest.

The park is the venue on Saturday, September 12 for the Midstock music festival, with gates open from 11am until 11pm. Whether you’re looking for a family day out or a night of dancing to some great Scottish bands, Midstock has the best music, delicious local food, family activities and much, much more. This year’s line up includes Fish, the Fratellis, the Hoosiers and Fatherson. Tickets are on sale at www.midstockfestival.com and at Dalkeith and Lasswade libraries.

There’s still time too, to book your tickets for the FREE Midfest Family Fun Day, to be held at Dalkeith Country Park this coming Sunday, September 13. In a final flourish to Midlothian’s week-long Midfest, the free-to-enter event includes performances from the Royal Scots Pipe Band, the Beeslack High School Taiko Drummers and Samba Bands, Funbox (brought to you by the performers and writers of the Singing Kettle), Lasswade High School Jazz Band, the Domestics, Milestone and Skababs.

You can also enjoy the fairground attractions, visit the arts and crafts stalls, or pick up on information, advice and freebies from the community safety village. A variety of food and drink will be on sale throughout the day. Gates open at 11.30am and the fun finishes at 7pm.

Parking is available from the King’s Gate (cars only) accessed from the A6106 from the Sheriffhall Roundabout and Dalkeith.

Although the fun day is free, it is a ticketed event. Details of how to book.
