The Hibernian Historical Trust will  host the fourth annual Leith Festival Open Day this Sunday

Supporters and other visitors will enjoy an access all areas self-guided tour from midday-4pm, covering the full stadium including the home dressing room, tunnel and dugout areas.

Volunteers and club staff will be on hand throughout the stadium to answer questions and provide further information.

A ‘Hands Off Hibs’ display will be on show to commemorate the event’s 25th anniversary plus a collection of donated football kit will also be on display, with supporters encouraged to donate their unwanted tops, shorts and boots to the Club throughout this week for redistribution to charitable causes.

Supporters will also be able to get their hands on the new 2015/16 Hibernian Home Strip, which goes on sale on Friday 19 June.

Chief Executive Leeann Dempster said: “Hibernian Football Club is excited to be part of the Leith Festival and to open our doors for everyone to come and have a look around.

“We have a big role to play in Leith and the wider Edinburgh community, and are trying to do more through the club and the Hibernian Community Foundation to positively impact on the lives of others.

“The Open Day is a chance for supporters, and for others who may not be football fans, to come and visit our home. We had over 2,000 through the doors last year, and look forward to welcoming more this year.”

Tom Wright, Club Historian and curator at the Hibernian Historical Trust, said: “The Hibernian Historical Trust is delighted to once again be holding an Open Day as part of the Leith Festival.

“The Festival is a highlight of the calendar and an important event for the Leith area, and we’re happy to work with the football club and the Hibernian Community Foundation to host an exciting event at Easter Road.”
