MONDAY – THURSDAY
Experience what it was like to be educated about history in days gone by - although obviously it wasn't history at that stage. Anyway, be prepared for a tour de'farce as Mr Chipping takes you down memory lane (it used to be just off the Cowgate).

Where: Barleybank Car Park - Kirkintilloch, G66 1JB at 7.00p.m.
Back on the supply list - retired Headteacher Mr Chipping, his father and grandfather will take you back in time to discover the untold story of Kirkintilloch - untold that is until Mr Chipping tells it!

(Bicycles not provided - bring your own - children require helmets)
A series of unique historical led walks and cycles through Kirkintilloch. Each evening you can enjoy a short walk or cycle through the town with Mr Chipping the retired headmaster. Victorian, WW1 and WW2 events will be retold in his own inimitable manner. Rediscover some of the stories of Kirkintilloch's past that you knew already and some that no one has ever heard before. All walks and cycle depart from Barleybank at 7pm. To book a space go to www.mr_chippingg66.eventbrite.co.uk
