Pinball wizard fun

THOSE who fondly remember the 1980s heyday of amusement arcades will be interested in an event taking place in Kilsyth this weekend.

The Coachman Hotel is the venue for the two-day Scottish Pinball and Arcade Expo, which will run on Saturday and Sunday, November 24-25.

All proceeds from this event will be donated to local charity Watch Us Grow, and the organisers promise an array of classic video game machines, and numerous pinball machines. A tournament, the Scottish Pinball Open will also take place and visitors will also be able to participate in various raffles and competitions.

Tickets are £10 per day but all machines will be free to play. Get your tickets from the Coachman Hotel in Parkfoot Street, Kilsyth, telephone 01236 821649.
