You’re Invited to the Winton Spring Festival This Weekend

Posted: 4th April 2019

Visitors are invited to the Winton Spring Festival this coming weekend, Saturday the 6th and Sunday the 7th of April.

The Winton Trail Run on Saturday 6th April (register by 1.30pm)

Starting amongst the daffodils outside Winton Castle, the popular Winton Trail Run follows well groomed, cross-country tracks for the 10K, 5K or 3.5K routes, with options for all ages and abilities.

Attracting about 600 runners last year, the Winton Trail Run offers opportunities to run off road through some of East Lothian’s most beautiful countryside.

There will be music, refreshments and the all-important, edible biscuit medals for finishers!

The proceeds are going to Marie Curie, the charity for terminal illnesses, and Pencaitland Primary School & Playgroup.

You can book through Winton’s website www.wintoncastle.co.uk or register on the day.

Winton’s Family Spring Open Day on Sunday 7th April (12 – 4.30pm)

On Sunday, Winton’s walled and terraced gardens will be open through Scotland’s Garden Scheme.

There will be tours of the Castle, artisan craft stalls and homemade teas at Café Winton. The family entertainment includes displays by birds of prey, archery, laser clays, Luca’s ice cream and whisky tasting by local Glenkinchie Distillery, the weekend’s main sponsors.

Winton is also hosting an outstanding photography exhibition, ‘18under18’, by young local artist, Andrew Bullock, the Scottish Youth Landscape Photographer of the Year (2018).

All profits from the Open Day will be going to Marie Curie and Scotland’s Gardens charities.

There’s no need to pre-book, and entry costs are £4 per adult with children free.

More information is available on Winton Castle’s website.
