YOUNG Knights and princesses are being invited to a regal event to celebrate the 750th birthday of Robert the Bruce.

The Bruce Festival will return to Dunfermline next month with an array of activities for young and old.

Organisers are invited locals to make the free event even more spectacular by dressing up as medieval knights and princesses.

Over 10,000 people are expected to come to Pittencrieff Park for the festival which is being held on June 1 and 2.

Among the entertainment on the day will be jousting, bows and arrows, bouncy castles, face painting and fairground rides.

There will also be staged battles and historical demonstrations to mark the anniversary of the birth of Bruce in 1274.

Back for the first time since the pandemic, the first Bruce Festival was held in the Glen in 2008.

Before one of the previous events, good luck messages were sought from the likes of Bruce Willis and Bruce Springsteen, as well as Dunfermline's own Bruce Watson.
