Organiser and playwright Douglas Maxwell said: "Growing up in Girvan has inspired all of my work. It's a place which produces writers, musicians, artists, designers, makers and enthusiastic, knowledgeable audiences.

"A festival which brings all of those strands together is a wonderful thing.

"My hometown is a special place for a visit any time, but with such a varied programme spread across the weekend, there's no better time to take a trip down the beautiful Ayrshire coast, and get a taste of that inspiration for yourself."
