A Victorian Street Fair will bring the past to life later this month and organisers hope his year’s event will be the 
biggest yet.

Being held in Bo’ness on Sunday, May 25, the event will see the town centre transformed into a bustling market, with charity stalls, a produce market and a wide variety of entertainment.

Mary Jane Armstrong, of Town Centre Management, said: “This year’s Victorian Street Fair will be the biggest and the best.

“Local groups will be out in full force, there will be a wide range of charities, craft and farmers’ market stalls with something for everyone.

“All the cafes will be open - there is so much going on. There are still stalls available but they’re going fast so be quick.

“There will be Roman pottery finds displayed in the
library, so go along and meet our experts.”

Entertainment on the stage will begin with a Salvation Army service at 10.45 a.m.

There will also be music from the Forth Bridges 
Accordion Band and Provost Pat Reid and the Bo’ness Children’s Fair Queen will also be in attendance.

Local musicians the Tonkerors, Bratz and Band of Buskers will be performing, and there will be a Sherlock Holmes Sketch, entitled ‘The Wonders of The Bo’ness Wheel’

There will also be fun with children as teacup rides, 
giant slides, a bungee run, bouncy castle, giant climbing wall and even some friendly jousting. To find out more about hiring a stall contact Mary Jane on 01324 611293.
