A brand new food and drink weekend is coming to Helensburgh this weekend.

Organised to raise funds for the Helensburgh Festive Lighting Charitable Trust, the group behind the town's annual Christmas lights display,  the festival will take place from 10am to 4pm on May 25 and 26 in Colquhoun Square. 

The event will include food, drink, crafts and gifts. There will also be cooking demos, tasters and a funfair for all the family. 

SHS Events already runs Helensburgh's regular food and craft market on the second and last Saturdays of each month, along with similar markets at venues including Loch Lomond Shores, the shopping centres at Braehead and Silverburn, and in Largs.

This is the first of two scheduled fundraising events for the Festive Lighting Charitable Trust, the second will be the annual Dog Show and Gala Day on Saturday, July 27.
