Jo Swinson MP for East Dunbartonshire is encouraging local residents to take part in Bishopbriggs’ Thomas Muir Festival from 13-16 November.  The festival features four days of events including music, debate, theatre and a family treasure hunt.

The third edition of the festival, organised by the Friends of Thomas Muir, will celebrate the life of a cherished local hero.
