Midlothian’s new festival of arts, Midfest, kicks off this weekend at Dalkeith Country Estate on Saturday.

There are more than 100 events and exhibitions crammed into the week-long festival.

Councillor Lisa Beattie (SNP), cabinet portfolio holder for culture, said: “Iain Hunter, who recently sold out the Edinburgh Jazz Festival, has kindly agreed to sing at our closing event.

“Iain will supplement what is already an excellent bill with the Kennedy Cupcakes and the Swing Supreme Jazz Swing band, and I would urge people to book their tickets now for what will be an excellent and entertaining conclusion to our first Midfest.”
