History of The Wickerman Festival

It all began way back in 2001, when Sid Ambrose, currently the festivals director, had the idea to make a festival just that bit different, by basing it on the classic British Horror film ?The Wicker Man?. He then teamed up with local Farmer Jamie Gilroy to decide on where such an event could be held. It was decided to hold it in East Kirkcarswell Farm, Dundrennan, where it remains until this day. The festival has always been firmly aimed at the family, providing an eclectic mixture of events and activities for all ages. Traditionally the Festival culminates in the burning of a 35 foot Wickerman, made by local craftsmen, and provides the highlight to an incredible and unique festival experience.
