What's on in Queensferry

  • Loony Dook - 1st January
    This world famous event, organised by The Moorings Lounge in South Queensferry, involves a huge number of people taking the plunge in the river forth in the shadow of the famous bridges every New Years Day. We welcome up to 500 participants and 3000 spectators from literally all over the world. In addition it has raised in excess of £60,000 for local charities, not to mention the many thousands of pounds which "dookers" raise for their own chosen good causes.

  • Christmas Pageant - December
    The Christmas Pageant is the biggest in Scotland, attracting more than 3,000 people to the centre of the Burgh to celebrate the start of the festive season. The evening features Santa arriving on one of the rooftops before riding his sleigh along the High Street. With kiddies rides, mulled wine, home-made soup, porridge to go and the Jubilee FM Christmas Disco, the street is abuzz with festive fun. Following the traditional switching on of the lights, fireworks across the Forth light up the sky and trigger off the singing and dancing.
