Heritage Day 2011

THE KNIGHTS are drawing in . . . for the Kinneil Heritage Day 2011.

The event takes place in Kinneil Estate on Sunday, August 28. Visitors will be able to enjoy a spectacular jousting show from the ‘Knights of The Damned’.  You’ll also be able to see the Alba Falconry Birds of Prey. Plus there will be archery from the Falkirk Company of Archers. Children aren’t forgotten about, with workshops, face painting, on-site storytelling, inflatable fun and a climbing wall on offer. There will also be a charity market to raise much-needed cash for local groups.

The Friends of Kinneil will play its part, working with Historic Scotland, to run free tours inside Kinneil House from noon to 4 p.m. (last admission 3.30 p.m.) Kinneil Museum will also be open during the family fun afternoon. The event kicks off in the park at 12.30 p.m. and runs until 4.30 p.m. (Please note the slightly earlier start/end times for Kinneil House tours). Best of all admission is free.

Please note there will be some parking restrictions around the estate on August 28. Follow the signs. If you’re stuck, ask one of the stewards/security team for help.
