Call for Memories and Memorabilia

As part of gathering stories and memorabilia for the exhibition The Making of a Pageant 1947-2005 we welcome you to take part in building a picture of the Pageants in Arbroath.

Did you attend or participate in the Arbroath Abbey Pageants of 1947-2005?

We’re preparing an exhibition celebrating the Pageant as part of the Arbroath 2020+1 festival and are looking for anyone who remembers the pageants to share their memories and memorabilia with us!

We’re interested in pictures, clippings, film footage (including Cine film) and any souvenirs you have!
