The Company of St Margaret

22 July 2017 11:07 - 22 July 2017

Join us at the Museum as we go back in time to the Middle Ages with the Company of St Margaret. See Medieval craftsmen hard at work and get up close to noble knights in their arms and armour.

You can also sample the flavours of the Middle Ages in our tearoom where we will be featuring a themed menu for the day – pottage anyone?

The event is one of a series of events inspired by local history and archaeology to support our current exhibition “East Neuk Unearthed”. Celebrating the Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology and funded by the National Lottery – Stories Stones and Bones.

Come along any time, event from 11 am – 4 pm.
