Scott’s Selkirk was a millennium project that proved so popular it quickly became an important part of the town’s annual event calendar. The life and times of Sir Walter Scott is celebrated throughout the town centre, with street performances, music, courtroom re-enactments, market stalls and much more. In recent years the event has benefitted by moving from it’s traditional December date to the first weekend in October, when it coincides with both Selkirk Sessions, and the Farmer’s Market. In order to help fund the event the association runs a shop in the Market Place, selling predominantly second hand books, but also greetings cards, local crafts and publications, and seasonal gifts. Run entirely by volunteers, the shop provides a community hub for selling tickets for local events and providing visitor information.
