Comedian and musician Adrian Edmondson is to play a music and arts festival in the north east of Scotland, it has been announced.

The former star of television's The Young Ones will play with his band the Bad Shepherds at the annual Wizard Festival in New Deer.

Other acts playing at the event - held in late August - include The Stranglers and The Magic Numbers.

Wizard Festival organiser Roy Thain said: "The bill just gets better."

The festival is now in its fifth year, and attracted thousands of people last year.

Further details are available at the festival's website.
