Wednesday sees the launch of the 19th annual Linlithgow Folk Festival, with numerous events in various local venues across five action-packed days.

The opening event is at Linlithgow Bowling Club on Philip Avenue, where stalwarts of Linlithgow Festival Association and their friends promise “a laugh and a bit of a hoolie to get you in the mood for the Festival weekend”.

The evening’s entertainment starts from 8pm, and admission is free - but with donations welcome.
