FANS that missed out on tickets for Jim Smith’s two sell out shows at the Tait Hall, Kelso are in luck.

Due to phenomenal demand Jim will park up his tractor once more at Hawick Town Hall on Saturday November 18.

The Perthshire farmer will be sharing anecdotes from his changing world – the past few years have seen him get engaged and become a father for the first time, not to mention farming through Covid and Brexit - as well as treating audiences to his trademark mix of regional accents and impressions.
