Galashiels hosts a range of festivals and events throughout the year.

From its annual Common Riding which commemorates local legend, history and tradition, to fashion shows, live music and entertainment which celebrate creativity and diversity, to seasonal sporting fixtures, art and photographic exhibitions, there is great vision and innovation within the town.

The events calendar – which includes uploads from our members – showcases what’s on and when so you can identify inspiring events to suit your own interests and schedule.

Like the entire Galashiels community, we look forward to seeing events returning to our annual calendar.

As soon as Government guidelines allow, and businesses and organisations are able to plan events once again, we would encourage all to promote their events on the Galshiels Heartland of the Borders website.
