James Watt Supper 2016

jameswatt-fromvictorianbook1The Friends of Kinneil charity will be hosting its annual James Watt Supper on Friday, January 15, 2016, at St. Mary’s Church Hall, off Linlithgow Road in Bo’ness.

The event – which is similar to a Burns’ Supper – starts at 7 p.m. and will feature a three course meal and entertainment.

Tickets are £10 for Friends of Kinneil members and £15 for non-members. To join The Friends, visit

It’s a bring your own bottle affair, although soft drinks will be provided. Historian and musician Ian Scott and his band will provide the music. There will also be “toasts” and readings about James Watt (rather than Burns!)

Watt did some of his early work at Kinneil Estate to develop the steam engine. His eventual discovery changed the world. Read more about Watt at Kinneil at
