The year 2019 (and 12 months of Watt events) is coming to a close …. But there’s one extra event planned in early 2020.

The Bo’ness Hippodrome will host a special, free evening about Watt, his life and legacy on the evening of Tuesday, January 21.

It’s the same week as Watt’s birthday (January 19) and will look back on a successful year celebrating the Scottish inventor.

Watt worked on his development of the steam engine at a cottage workshop – which still stands – just a few miles from the Hippodrome.

The event on January 21 is due to start at 7 p.m. and run until 9 p.m. Tickets will be available via Eventbrite very soon.
