The operators of the oldest working theatre in Scotland are seeking financial support to safeguard its immediate future.

The Guild of Players at the Theatre Royal in Dumfries need £30,000 to carry out roof repairs and improve heating.

They have applied to Dumfries and Galloway Council, which will meet later this week to discuss the bid.

A report on the longer term future of the historic venue is still being developed.
