IFLI Inner Forth Festival

Every September IFLI organise the Inner Forth Festival, a month of free events hosted by ourselves and our partners which aims to celebrate and enjoy the wealth of natural, cultural and built heritage the Inner Forth Landscape offers. You can find our more about last year and what sort of events we had on offer in 2017 below. 

IFLI Inner Forth Festival 2017

The third Inner Forth took place in September 2017, with hundreds of people attending over 30 held events across the area. 

There was a whole range of free events and activities, brought together by 15 different organisations, all aimed at celebrating the important and diverse natural, historical and cultural heritage found in the Inner Forth. As with our events throughout the year we tried to make sure that there was something for everyone - whatever your age, wherever you live in the area, and whether you are interested in history, wildlife, or just like getting out and about in our fantastic landscape.

There were archaeological surveys, a cruise on the Forth, bushcraft adventures, moth mornings, bat hunts, a history-themed boat ride, healthy walks, fascinating talks, a rare chance to climb an ancient tower, scrub bashing, wildlife workshops, and loads more exciting and fun ways to discover, explore and get involved in the Inner Forth landscape.

We are very grateful to the huge range of organisations and volunteers that make the Festival possible by organising, running and supporting the month’s events. We really couldn’t do it without them!
