Bannockburn's Across the Bridge art festival spokeswoman Jan Hawkins models some of the creative hats which will be on show during this year's Bannie Beanie Competition Display.

The competition will showcase the work of talented milliners. Those designs are a secret until the opening. However, all will be revealed from October 5-6, when an exhibition of other millinery designs by locals will also be on display at the Bannockburn Community Church, including those pictured.

The Bannie Beanie Competition theme this year is "In Our Element'' and the public is encouraged to vote for their favourite.

A range of other events are also planned for the week, including plays, a poetry open-mic performance, art displays and workshops, to name a few.

Festivities start today and run until Sunday.
