Sorting out the goodies for Night at Kinneil

VOLUNTEERS from The Friends of Kinneil were busy tonight – making more than 250 goodie bags for “Night At Kinneil Museum”, one of the Festival of Museums/Museums at Night events being held this weekend.

You can pick up your free goodie bag simply by going along to Kinneil Museum in Bo’ness any time between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Friday, May 18. In addition to the freebie, you can also enjoy a free history walk, meet the Romans and enjoy some music. Full details at

Please note that goodie bags are subject to availability.

A big thank you to all the organisations which helped make the goodie bags possible: LIDL, FARMFOODS, SCOTTISH FINE SOAPS, SPAR, VISIT FALKIRK/FALKIRK COUNCIL, THE FRIENDS OF KINNEIL – and MUSEUMS GALLERIES SCOTLAND, which provided core funding for the Kinneil event.
