Description

We are so excited to be welcoming Scott McMaster along to deliver a talk entitled: “The Outlaw King; how accurately did Hollywood portray Robert the Bruce?” Scott was the Historical Advisor to the movie ‘The Outlaw King’ and is a Property Manager with the National Trust for Scotland. He will discuss how closely the recent film sticks to historical fact and what is was like to work with the director, cast and production team as Chief Historical Advisor. He’ll share some of the secrets of re-creating Scottish history on the big screen and display some of the props from the movie. Some of the movie was filmed right here in Linlithgow so it will be great to hear Scott’s experiences. His talk will take place on March 20th at 7pm in St Peters Church.

Tickets are available in the museum shop or online at Linlithgow Museum Online Tickets Sales

Entry to the talks are by ticket only and tickets for all talks cost £5 each (plus a 50p online booking fee).  Tickets include a cuppa and, you will be pleased to know, that we will be keeping up the high standard of biscuits we set in 2019!  All proceeds will go to the upkeep of our wonderful museum.

The Partnership Centre is home to a host of local services such as a Library, Customer Information Services, Local History Library, Family History Society, Police Scotland and Linlithgow & District Community Day Care Centre. 

The museum will feature three new galleries and a bespoke Community Space.

Volunteers from across the area will develop a range of heritage-based skills, whilst local people will have a chance to take part in exciting activities from art workshops to a community archaeology dig.
