The giant bash will take place on Saturday, June 11 in The Muirfield Centre in South Muirfield Road as the traditional gala base of The Link Centre will still be utilised as a vaccination hub.

Organiser Billy Lees of Cumbernauld Community Forum has also revealed that it is the turn of Westfield Primary to provide the royal party that ‘reigns’ over the bid day.

Billy said: “Weather permitting it will be a great day after the community being in lockdown for two years. Anyone wishing to book stalls can pick up an application centre at the Muirfield Centre or Cornerstone Community hub.”

The gala day is the biggest event to take place in the town barring the Cumbernauld 10k which will also be making a comeback this year -on Sunday, September 11.
