A celebration of art and community will bring Smythesdale to life in February.
Organisers of the Smythesdale Art and Music Fiesta have announced the postponed 2020 event will be held on Sunday February 7.
Smythesdale ceramicist and event organiser Barry Wemyss said the event would showcase creators of art, culture, music and poetry from Smythesdale and surrounding towns.

"There is a lot of talent in the area," he said.
"The local community may not be aware who their neighbours may be. It is bringing community together in a common space."
The first Smythesdale Art and Music Fiesta was first held in 2019 and was described as a 'beautiful event'.
The upcoming event will showcase music performers on the Village Green with a creators market, kinetic sculptures and a mural painting.
Poetry and readings will be hosted in the historic courthouse.
The work of nationally recognised artists including ceramicist Ruby Pilven, print maker Vida Pearson and acrylic painter Kate Wise will be exhibited in The Well Community Centre.
Ms Wise said she would also be doing a painting on the day, allowing visitors to watch the process or have a go and join in.
"It will be really fun," she said.
"I think people are really interested in the process.
"It is ordinary to us but lots of people don't get to see the art being made, they just see the finished product."
Ms Pearson said participating in the exhibition was good local exposure.
"We haven't had much opportunity in the last 12 months to show our work," she said.
"People are artstarved. Come out to Smythesdale for art and fresh air."
Mr Wemyss said the fiesta was also an opportunity to showcase upcoming artists and musicians and discover new talent.
"Word is getting out there and there are people coming out that I am not aware of which is great," he said.
The Smythesdale Art and Music Fiesta will be held on February 7 from 10am to 3pm.
It is supported by Golden Plains Shire and GP Arts Incorporated.
