Gunpowder displays, cookery and cocktail making demonstrations and shortbread soldier decorating will be the order of the day at a summer festival taking place next weekend.

People are being invited to join in the fun at The Black Watch Castle and Museum event on Saturday (September 5).

The event is happening at the museum, based in Perth, from 10am until 4pm.

Rebecca Berger, learning and audience officer, said: “We are thrilled to be hosting our first annual summer festival.

“The day is jam packed full of fun and entertainment for all ages. The castle and museum has so much to offer and we hope this event will really highlight that.”

Visitors can also indulge in the Wicked chocolate stall with a flowing chocolate fountain; let the kids dress up as soldiers and have fun as a family trying to beat the goalie.
