Description


The Inverness Townscape Heritage project is hosting a talk on the history of the Victorian Market from 6 – 7pm on Tuesday the 5 of December in the Market. Come along and join the team for some mince pies and refreshments.

Local historian Norman Newton will give an informative talk on the history of the market, in particular the catastrophic fire of 1889. The Victorian Market has been the location of an amazing array of traders over the generations and as a result has a unique character and community which has inspired artists, poets, writers and musicians.

Norman will be joined by local writers Barbara Henderson and Jennifer Morag Henderson who will be reading from their recent works. Images from this summers Vicitorian Market Rephotography project will also be on display.
