Events in the Tweed Valley


  • Over a period of 10 days, this small but incredibly creative Borders town celebrates the work of its many artists, arts groups, musicians, poets, film makers and craftspeople. As well as indoor performances and workshops, there are opportunities to explore the fascinating history, architecture, nature and landscape of Peebles and around through a series of talks, walks and tours. Whether it's live music, theatre, film, dance, visual arts, crafts, tours, or some of the many activities taking place out on the streets of Peebles, there’s something for every age and interest.

    The team behind the TweedLove Bike Festival have stepped out of the saddle to create a brand new trail running event in the autumn. Now in its second year, the Tweed Valley Tunnel Trail Run in October takes runners on an autumnal journey along riverside paths, through gorgeous woodland and out into the hills before diving into the Neidpath Tunnel – a 600m disused railway tunnel, complete with lighting effects and sound system specially installed for the event. Suitable for seasoned trail runners or complete beginners, participants can choose between two distances – approximately 10k and 20k, all off-road. Starts and finishes at Hay Lodge Park, Peebles.
