Full time for Battle of Bannockburn temporary exhibition
Friday 1 March 2013
Visitors looking ahead to the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn can drop by the onsite exhibition any day of the week from 1 March. The temporary facility, which gives a glimpse of what will be in store for visitors when the new facilities open in 2014, was set up after the almost 50-year-old Bannockburn Heritage Centre was demolished in October last year.
Now open from 10am-5pm, 7 days a week, the temporary exhibition space provides an information point for the Battle of Bannockburn project and the heritage site. Visitors can watch an HD movie about the events of the battle and learn more about the onsite developments.
Staff will be on hand to answer any queries, and a small shop offers a bespoke range of products featuring the already award-winning Bannockburn brand. Scott McMaster, Bannockburn Property Manager at the National Trust for Scotland said:
“The temporary exhibition will give visitors a glimpse of the plans for our amazing new look here at Bannockburn. And as they’ll be able to see all the work that’s underway onsite and the fantastic progress we’re making with the building, we hope it will raise anticipation for 2014.”
