Milton of Campsie Village Hall is hosting it’s very own October Fest with free real-ale tasting at all events - thanks to donations from Milton of Campsie Coop.

But there is also music and art at the event organised by G666+live and Milton of Campsie Arts Club.

It kicks off with a free Art show/sale at 5.30pm on Friday October 21. The Art can also be viewed on Saturday and Sunday afternoons between 1.30-7pm and on Sunday until 4.30pm.

The popular local Art Club Calendar will be on sale at only £3 - thanks to East Dunbartonshire Arts Council’s support.

A Ceilidh is on Friday starting at 7pm with two great folk bands: Campsie Folk and Willow Moon, followed by dancing to 8-piece Campsie Ceilidh Band. Solo performances include Calum Low on accordion and songs from Rena Scott, Stan Quirk and Bill Forrest. It cost £5 entry at the door with ale-tasting at the interval.

On Saturdy (22nd) the Lydia De Rosa Singers perform at 7.30pm. These eight singers present a beautiful varied programme of music from ancient to modern. Again it is £5 or £1 children with refreshments and ale tasting for the adults.

On Sunday there is a free Jazz afternoon from 2.15pm features Trad/New Orleans and Dixie from Stevie’s Up-Town Band and Chris Clark singing with guitar from the Great American Song-Book. This will be the last chance for Real Ale tasting and refreshments.

There will also be Fair Trade refreshments provided at all times. The Milton of Campsie Hall Trust would like to thanks G66+live for financial support.
