Social History

Sport & Entertainment

The leisure-time of the people of the region has long been filled with a wide variety of pastimes and activities. Many of these, including football, curling and golf, have spawned players and teams who have gone on to receive international recognition, but for most, the weekly round of golf or game of bowls is more of a social occasion than anything else. As well as a long history of recreational and competetive sport, people of South West Scotland have also been brought together to be delighted and amused by concerts and shows.
