The annual Festival of Remembrance takes place in Falkirk Town Hall next Saturday (November 12).

Starting at 7pm, the compere once again is Bill Black who will introduce a host of local artistes – Unison Kinneil Band, Central Scotland Ballet School, CarronCast and mezzo soprano Lynn Bellamy, accompanied by Ailsa Aitkenhead.

Tickets cost £5 and are available from the box office at Falkirk Stadium or by contacting Harry Foster on (01324) 506152 or Lee Williamson on (01324) 506153 at Falkirk Municipal Buildings.

This year’s festival will have a special poignancy given the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme.
