Nip Nebs at the Big Burns Supper Fringe Fest

wee pixies ready for the Nip Nebs trail


These cute peg pixies were created for a fantastic Nip Nebs Trail taking place over the next two weekends (January 20th and 27th) in Dumfries. The trail has been devised by author and storyteller Susi Briggs with help from artist Ruthie Redden. Together with ‘Nip Nebs’ (Scot’s name for Jack Frost) they will be leading a trail through the centre of Dumfries as part of the Big Burns Supper Wee Fringe Festival. Starting at the Fringe Hub at the Baker’s Oven shop near the Midsteeple, Nip Nebs will take families on a journey discovering the delights of the Scots language through the telling of the delightful winter tale written by Susi and illustrated by Ruthie. You can join in the fun at 11am on the 20th and 12 noon on the 27th. There will be lots of surprises and things to find along the way and the trail will end at the famous Globe Inn where Scots Bard Rabbie Burns used to sometimes call by for a lemonade while he read one or two of his poems.
