In 2023....

We have loved the PlayFest being in town such magic for the children.

We loved the playfest at the castle and in the park! Great to see such a big turn out!

We are enjoying having the play fest to come to with our family. So nice for the children to have new things and creative things to do.

Soooo amazing!


Beautiful setting, great range of family-friendly activities and refreshments.


Very good, nice instruments. Pretty place.

Moving and captivating stories from word weavers and an interesting new take on Frankenstein. In years to come expectations will no doubt be mounted so make a film. Very nice atmosphere at this Play Fest. 


Wonderful! The family day at Duns Castle was magical and really sparked imaginations. Brilliant gigs. Thank you.


Absolutely beautiful, family friendly festival. Duns Volly Hall was turned into a gorgeous, seductive little cave-we saw wonderful acts. Bravo!

Finding Mary - Fantastic acting, wonderful play. Incredibly moving. It resonated with the human spirit, the call for adventure and re-birth, yet the fears of being outside your comfort zone.


Great to have so much choice.


Informative, fun, everyone is very welcoming.

Sunday evening-It was very friendly and I met some interesting people. I loved the atmosphere and the performances were excellent. Well worth travelling for.
