Homecoming Scotland 2014: Dumfries and Galloway Arts Festival

Established as the region’s premier calendar entertainments event since 1979, the Dumfries and Galloway Arts Festival is Scotland’s largest rural multi-art form festival, with more than 170 artists performing at 60 events in 30 venues across the full breadth of the region.

Each year, the festival involves a lively and varied programme, showcasing an eclectic range of top-billed performances in music, drama, dance, arts and literature in a selection of venues from the tiny, intimate Swallow Theatre to the grandeur of the Easterbrook Hall and a wide outdoor stage on the banks of the River Nith.

The festival has an excellent reputation for bringing top quality world-class performances to rural locations at the end of May each year.

Musical events range from unforgettable operas, to classical, jazz, traditional, contemporary and world music that are usually only experienced in the world’s city venues. Dance, the world of books and ground-breaking theatrical performances are also mainstays of the yearly programmes, as are some well-established mini festivals in literature and song and an exciting and lively fringe.

First Equal Sex Marriage in the UK takes place in Sheffield

Love is in the air this month but next it will be thoughts of weddings, as Sheffield wins the equal marriage ‘race’. The first Equal marriage has taken place in Sheffield on 29th of March 2014.  Kyle Emerson and Richie Wood become the first same-sex couple in Sheffield to get married at a beautiful midnight ceremony. At least four gay couples have registered to become the first in Sheffield to get married, according to a leading equality campaigner.

How same-sex marriage differs from civil partnership

Civil partnership is a legal relationship exclusively for same-sex couples, distinct from marriage. It offers the same legal treatment as marriage across a range of matters, such as inheritance, life assurance and next of kin.

Up until 29 March opposite-sex couples can opt for a religious or civil marriage ceremony, whereas a same-sex partnership is an exclusively civil procedure. 

Aston Hotel Sheffield offers ideal setting for intimate wedding, to find out more & to view our wedding brochure click here
