The year 2023 will mark the 12th time that the palatial, stately home in West Lothian (near the Forth Bridges) has hosted its annual Bonfire Night and fireworks display.

After last year's post-Covid comeback, this year's fireworks extravaganza, designed and produced again by 21CC Group, is billed as the "A Night At The Movies" edition.

The evening's entertainment includes food and drink stalls, a Guy Fawkes bonfire, a bungee jump, and fairground attractions.

The evening concludes with a grand finale of fireworks set to classic film scores and songs from the movies.

Gates open for arrivals from 4pm until 6pm, when they will be closed. The firework display takes place at approximately 6.30pm, with the fairground and other attractions continuing on til 7.45pm.

There is ample free parking for cars, but you need a free ticket in advance.

No tickets can be purchased on the night - tickets must be purchased in advance. Taxi drop off is available.

Dress warmly and carry a torch.
