Join us for a Revolutionary day out!
The Revolution Festival returns to The Wheel this summer and it’s going to be bigger, better – and much more colourful than ever before!
We will kick the day off at 11am when we see just how many paddle boards, kayaks, and canoes we can fit on The Falkirk Wheel at one time in the second annual Lock’N’Paddle! Secure your spot around the basin to watch as they take a spin on the world’s only rotating boat lift!
Lock’N’Paddle will be followed by a selection of live music, scrumptious scran, and unique events as the celebrations continue into the day.
Get your groove on with music from Dj Steven Menzies, meet The Wheel bees and see how they make honey, and join in on our soft archery and water sports! Shoot your shot with Wee Heroes Super Hero Laser Tag, take a ride on our bumper boats and water zorbs, win a Paddleboard team race with Willowgate Activity Centre, and visit the RSPB stall, and the Scottish Canals environment and heritage hubs for lots of info on Scotland’s beautiful canals and the wildlife that inhabits it.
For those looking to refuel during the festivities, there’ll be stone-baked pizza and artisan ice cream from Falkirk-based parlour The Milk Barn, and an array of sweet and savoury treats on offer in the Wheel’s café.
To top it all off, for the first time ever at The Falkirk Wheel we are celebrating with a colour fight! Family and friends from ages six – 106 will get the chance to paint the town (and each other) red, blue, green and orange, and kids between three and six will get the chance to pick their tribe for a kiddies only colour fight. Book your space and find out more about the Revolution Colour Fight below!
Pop along to the The Falkirk Wheel on Saturday 29th June between 11am and 5pm to see what we have in store.
