  • Thursday 5 October 2017 - 11:00 until 16:00

We all know the history of the Jacobites and the latest Bonnie Prince Charlie exhibition at the Chambers Street Museum in Edinburgh includes over three hundred artefacts which makes it the largest one for 70 years. Paintings, costumes, documents, weapons and books sourced from all over Europe and the United Kingdom will be a feast for the eye.

To make the exhibition even more rewarding Curator David Forsyth will set it in its historical context before Miriam McLeod, textile Conservator, and Diana de Bellaigue, Artefact Conservator, tell us about some of the work which needed to be done before displaying these wonderful objects.

Depending upon the length of the questions and answers session these talks will finish about 12.45 when there will be time for lunch before going around the exhibition. Lunch is not included in the price of the ticket to allow you to choose where and what you would like to eat.The Seminar Room on level 4 of the learning Centre will also be available for those who want to take a picnic.

Coach pick up times: Stracathro 8.30, Forfar 9.00, Dundee 9.30
