Taking place between Saturday 12 August and Saturday 26 August, GeorgeFest17 had something for everyone with a wide range of themed events and activities.
As well as a fun programme of fabulous guided walks and fascinating talks, there were events that allowed you to see inside some of the town’s hidden Georgian treasures, including the interior of Culloden Tower and the opportunity to get up close and personal with the town’s church bells.
