THE final touches are being made to the programme for this year’s Kirkintilloch Canal Festival – and they promise it will be bigger and better than ever.

The free event attracts thousands to the town every year and in 2011 the festival will last a whole week.

The fun will begin on Monday, August 22 – culminating in an extensive programme of events on Sunday, August 28.

This year the festival is linking in with the Kirkintilloch 800 celebrations – marking 800 years of the town becoming a Burgh of Barony.

The full line-up is expected to be announced later this month.
