Come to Linlithgow Palace’s Fright Night, if you dare…

9 October 2012

                       Linlithgow Palace

Are you brave enough to come to Linlithgow Palace, the birth place of Mary Queen of Scots, as night falls, and meet some of the less pleasant characters in its history?

Alison Stalker,  Historic Scotland’s Assistant Events Manager said: “‘This makes for a  fascinating, scary evening where you can hear about the darker side of the history of the Palace and the local area.

“It is definitely not suitable for young children and is an evening full of surprises which you won’t forget in a hurry…”

The events take place on Friday 12th, Saturday 13th, Friday 19th and Saturday 20th October 2012.

Times: 7:30 pm, 8:30 pm and 9:30 pm.

Tickets £10.00.

10% discount for Historic Scotland members.
