Movie magic is set to boost fundraising efforts for next year’s Hawick Common Riding.

The 2014 film What We Did on Our Holiday, starring David Tennant and Billy Connolly, will be screened at the Heart of Hawick on Saturday, September 3.

Tickets are £10 each, including a glass of wine, and proceeds will go to the Bright-Eyed Daughters’ Association, a not-for-profit voluntary association set up to promote knowledge of the history of the town’s common riding.

Founded originally to cover the ongoing costs of The Kids’ Guide to Hawick Common Riding, a book given to every P6 pupil in Hawick and nearby, the association now has more than 250 members and has also published My First Common Riding Book, a companion guide for p1 pupils and an Illustrated Guide to the Common Riding for Adults, as well as 2014’s illustrated translation of James Hogg’s Teribus Ye Teri Odin.

The association is responsible for the landscaping and maintenance of Hornshole too.
