THINGS will go bump in the night in Kirkintilloch ... as well as sizzle, yum and yaaaaaar!

It’s not just youngsters who can enjoy some spooky-themed fun at Hallowe’en – there’s a quirky G66+ Live event taking place in Kirkintilloch for people of all ages.

Local eco adventure outfit Wild by Nature is inviting people to enjoy a hog roast with chestnuts and mulled wine, heritage/ghost walks, an evening pirate canoe trip and guided walks to an old ‘haunted’ asylum.

People are being encouraged to dress up in costume and buskers are welcome.

A spokesperson for Kirkintilloch-based Wild by Nature said: “This is a first for Kirkintilloch, only made possible through volunteer involvement and support from G66+ Live, along with involvement from Braveheart caterers, East Dunbartonshire Council and Wild by Nature.

“Come along have a laugh. It’s a community-based event for locals to have some traditional autumn fun – with something for families and adults too.”

There will also be Hallowe’en favourites such as bobbing for apples. It is hoped the informal event might become an annual fixture.

No need to book, just turn up anytime between 6pm and midnight on Wednesday, October 31, at the Barleybank car park in Kirkintilloch. Please dress accordingly for a cold autumn evening of music, food, fun and more.
