Falkirk Community Trust has received support from the Scotland’s Winter Festivals event programme, which is managed by EventScotland on behalf of Scottish Government, to bring the family friendly event back to the Falkirk area for 2018.
Ruth Morrison, Chair of Falkirk Community Trust, said:
"We are delighted that we are able to grow this extremely popular event for 2018 thanks to continued support from Event Scotland who have been major supporters from the start. We look forward to seeing even more people from Falkirk and outwith the area there to welcome in the New Year."
Cllr Robert Spears, Portfolio Holder for Culture, Leisure and Tourism, said:
"Fire and Light is a fantastic addition to Scotland’s winter festival events and a wonderful way for everyone to start 2018. As well as offering people in the Falkirk area an opportunity to come together and celebrate, Fire and Light attracts visitors into the area by boosting its profile."
Dr Alasdair Allan, Minister for International Development and Europe, said
"Few places celebrate New Year quite like Scotland – the home of the world renowned Hogmanay celebrations. Fire festivals, torchlight processions, street parties, live music, fireworks and good food and drink really make Scotland one of the best places in the world to bring in the New Year."
