The Civic Week Queen will open the afternoon of fun including dancing displays, circus entertainers, Army Cadet inflatable obstacle course & climbing tower, Enjoy-a-ball, beat the goalie, target bowls, community stalls and East Coast FM. We’re absolutely delighted to welcome the wonderful BarrowBand, the first folk-bootanico-encyclopedic band on the planet and their kinetic market Barrow covered with various fruit, vegetables and beasts.

New to town? Looking for information about the wide range of activities, services, events in the town? A warm welcome and lots of information about What’s on in Dunbar from the Dunbar Community Council stall. Please come and see us!

Victorian Portrait Studio @ McArthur’s Stores, Victoria Street 2 – 5pm

An informal, engaging and free Victorian photographic portrait session with Alastair Cook – drop in on today, 18th and 24th June and have your portrait made.

Disco Soup with The BarrowBand @ Methodist Church Hall 4 – 6 pm FREE

Every year 90,000 tonnes of produce gets sent to landfill from the UK due to being squashy,  nobbly,  scabby, dumpy, ugly, curly, dirty or lumpy. Help save them by coming to make and eat some delicious soup while enjoying the BarrowBand singing, dancing and juggling their way through a large selection of original songs using styles drawn from pop, folk, country, Indian, klezmer, thrash jazz and more.
