Revellers will be invited to go ‘nuts’ for a whole week at this year’s Forth Valley Orchards annual showpiece.

The family event will be held in Callendar House from September 16-22 that will feature a fun-filled and educational programme of orchard-focused activities.

The event is a celebration of the Forth Valley’s orchards and fruit trees and last year’s one-day festival was so successful that organisers have decided to make it last the week.

A spokesperson said: “This is the first time that we will have held the event over a week and a weekend, and are very excited about working with Falkirk Community Trust again.”

A ‘great fruit pie bake-off’ and drama ‘The Forgotten Orchard’ will feature this year as well as advice and tips on how to grow your food. For more information call 01786 449215.
