Sound reduced to silence

GALASHIELS Sound music festival, which was due to return to the town on June 30 – Braw Lads’ Day – has been cancelled due to poor ticket sales.

The organisers said: “We are sorry for everyone who purchased tickets, they will now receive a full refund by taking their ticket back to the outlet where purchased. And we would like to thank them for making the effort.”

Sound was launched in 2009 at Netherdale but was cancelled at the last minute in 2010.
