Join Friends for James Watt Supper


wattsouthouse
The Friends of Kinneil charity is hosting a special evening on Friday, January 18, 2013, to celebrate the life and works of James Watt (born January 19, 1736).

Watt carried out early works at Kinneil Estate to develop an improved steam engine. (Find out more at www.kinneil.org.uk/jameswatt)

At this special event, we’ll hear about Watt’s legacy, drink a toast to his success and get contributions from Friends members. We’ll also enjoy a typical Scottish meal from the 18th century:

  • Scotch Broth (Vegetarian Stock);
  • Salamagundi (Cold Meat Salad) or Salmon;
  • Steamed Pudding.

The event is being held at

St. Mary’s Church Hall
St. Mary of the Assumption Church,
Linlithgow Road, Bo’ness,
EH51 0DP (starting at 7 p.m.)

PLEASE NOTE: This event is only open to Friends of Kinneil Members, their guests, and guests invited by the charity. It is not a public event. If you are not a member of The Friends of Kinneil, but would like to join and attend this event, visit www.kinneil.org.uk/friends

Each member will pay just £7.50 a head for the night – not bad for a three course meal and entertainment.
