Maria Ford from The Friends of Kinneil charity in Bo’ness which founded the event said: “The festival has become a regular fixture in the local calendar and hopefully it continues to be popular with local people and visitors for many years to come.“We’re really grateful to Falkirk Community Trust, which has organised many of the events for the Week, as well as Falkirk Council for supporting the Festival.“Although the festival was born in Bo’ness, we’ve always been keen to involve people right across the district.”
