Event description

Description

Join Jim Thomson and Provost Buchanan at Bonnybridge Library to help us celebrate the bicentenary of the insurrection.

Bonnybridge Library is hosting a Radical Art Exhibition featuring an array of fabulous work by third year art pupils at Balfron High School. The artwork is designed to commemorate the anniversary of the 1820 Battle of Bonnymuir. This fabulous exhibition was initiated by Jim Thomson of the Balfron Heritage Group who will be joining us at this event to tell us about the background to the exhibition and preparations for the insurrection bicentenary in an illustrated talk. There will even be a reading from Tom Lannon’s The Boys from Bonnymuir.

Provost Buchanan will also join us to present on the 1820 Battle of Bonnymuir itself and Scottish Radicals.

Join us on May 24th, for an entertaining and insightful cultural foray into an important aspect of our local history.
