MAUCHLINE will play host to the annual Holy Fair event next month.

The community led event commemorates the traditions of Holy Fairs as would have been attended by Burns himself in the late 1700s.

The day is set to be a fun day out for families, with local entertainment, music, stalls, as well as activities and interests for all ages.

The event will take place on Saturday, May 25 and will be free of charge.
