The Big Burns Supper is returning to Dumfries for an eighth year with its most spectacular line-up to date.
And we’ve got tickets for some of the biggest shows to be won.
The 11-day festival – now the world’s biggest contemporary Burns celebration – will run from January 24 to February 3 and bring together more than 100 events and performances.
Three winners will get a pair of tickets to one of three shows: comedian Ed Byrne, music star Hazel O’Connor and soul DJ Craig Charles.

And BBC Radio 6 Music Funk and Soul Show host Craig will be spinning classics of the genre.
