What’s on

For an area with such a small population, there’s always lots going on in the Tweed Valley, so this list by no means covers everything.

For more information on what’s on, Border Events provides a good searchable list, and for a local night out, the Eastgate Theatre in Peebles has a wide range of entertainment including films on Sundays.
