3rd April - Drama "Lazarus Speaks"
7pm the Service of Shadows - Tenebrae - will be held at Jedburgh Old & Trinity Parish Church.
The Tenebrae is a very old Christian service, marking Jesus' death on the cross. It combines drama, music and a deepening darkness as all become aware of how dark the world can be as the Light of the world is extinguished.
This year's drama is "Lazarus Speaks". It finds us at the home of Martha, Mary and Lazarus as they observe the Sabbath the evening of Jesus' crucifixion. They are joined by Jesus' disciple, Simon Peter. Cast members are from Jedburgh, Oxnam and Lilliesleaf.
The congregation has the opportunity to eavesdrop on their reflections of Jesus' life and death. They struggle to come to terms with all that has happened without knowing or understanding what would happen the First Day of the Week.
2nd May - 4th May - Art at Ancrum
Various venues around the village, including village hall, Cross Keys Inn, shop, church and a number of private houses turned over to art for the weekend.
At least 30 invited professional artists and makers taking part. These range from visual arts, textiles, ceramics, wood and jewellery.
There are also two further exhibitions of art.
There is an exhibition “Absent Friends” in the The Cross Keys.
This features a selection of work by various artists who are not taking part in the event itself, but who we rate highly.

28th June - Family Day
Penielheugh Wellington Monument between midday and 6pm, a day of entertainment for all the family.
Plans are still being finalised, but already they include massed local pipe bands, a military band, a mass ride out of riders young and old, including, it is hoped, the Callant, military re-enactments, special visitors and participants, trade stalls and food outlets.
This programme will culminate with a beating of the retreat, a display of daylight fireworks and the lighting of the bonfire.
It will be the biggest event ever held on Penielheugh since the monument was built and all will be welcome.
