Crafts during October School Holidays 2023
Trial by Jury: Murder in the Glen
Mark Bridgeman (best-selling author of Blood Across The Water, Blood Beneath Ben Nevis, and The Nearly Man) is bringing a real life Victorian murder trial to the Glencoe Folk Museum, in which YOU the audience will become the jury! Join us at the Museum afterhours on Friday 27 October at 7pm - this is a BYOB (bring your own booze) event.
In the case that scandalised Glencoe, you will see the evidence, hear the witnesses, listen to the barristers, then make up your mind! With a PRIZE for the winner, the actual verdict revealed at the end, and the chance for a Q&A with this author, this promises to be an event to remember . . .
Is he guilty, is he innocent? Will you send a man to the gallows?
It is the last time you will have the chance to visit the Museum as it is before we shut from redevelopment!
Look here for further updates or follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Tickets will be available via Eventbrite and should be booked in advance to avoid disappointment as spaces are limited.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact Parris, our Learning and Engagement Officer, via email firstname.lastname@example.org
We have one week of autumn themed crafts followed by a week of Halloween crafts at our Museum.
See the posters for what crafts are on which days, come to all or come to one!
You don't need to book, just come between 1-3pm and kids can take part in our Harry Potter Lego scavenger hunt, get a sweetie and a sticker, all for £3 per child.
Locals enter for free; £3 entry for tourists.
We've had several successful talks already including: Susan Fletcher discussing her book 'Witch Light' which uses local history - Corrag the witch and the Glencoe Massacre - as its inspiration; Dr Fraser Hunter of National Museum of Scotland shared his opinion and knowledge on the mysterious Ballachulish Figure; Bob Pegg, storyteller and musician, told us some Scottish folk tales; Susan Kemp sharing 'The Ballachulish Escape' story with us, an incredible tale of three local men who escaped capture by speaking Gaelic; Flora Fraser, historical biographer, who told us about the life of Scottish Jacobite heroine Flora MacDonald; and the 'Clans, conflict and culture during the Middle Ages in Rannoch' talk delivered by Dr MacGregor.
Interested in any of these talks? We have recordings of these events. If you would like access to any of these recordings, you can contact Parris via email@example.com. We ask for a donation of £5 to the Museum.
