Visitors to Penicuik still have plenty of time to see the thriving ‘he-art’ of the town thanks to the annual Penfest celebrations.

The annual arts festival, organised by Penicuik Community Arts Association, started last Saturday with the opening of the art exhibition in the arts centre, West Street.

The festival, which is running in tandem with the Midlothian-wide Midfest, continues tomorrow (Friday) with an evening of stories and song.

Step into My Parlour will be performed at the arts centre at 8pm. This show is a collection of songs from the Irish tradition interspersed with stories, memories and tales.
