Nick Cope Concert in Linlithgow

Well know children’s musician Nick Cope is coming to Linlithgow for a show for the kids (and big kids!) alike. Taking place at Longcroft Hall at 14.30 on Saturday, it’s sure to be a fun afternoon of sing-along music.



Don’t forget, we’re running an excellent competition for a free family ticket to visit On Location: Blackness, together with Historic Scotland. All you need to do is visit our Facebook page (, like the post and you’ll be in for a chance to win!
