Diamond Jubilee Exhibition at Muckhart
Tuesday 26th June 2012
An exhibition, The Diamond Jubilee 2012: The Queen and Clackmannanshire, will be shown from 11am -3pm on Saturday 30th June and Sunday 1st July in Muckhart Coronation Hall.
This special exhibition has been created by Clackmannanshire Council Museum and Heritage Service to coincide with the celebration of Her Majesty the Queen's 60 years on the throne.
The exhibition looks at aspects of life in Clackmannanshire in the 1950s and beyond, including the opening of Greenfield House as Alloa Burgh Council's headquarters in 1952, as well as the Queen's visits to the county in 1963 and 1997.
A range of commemorative memorabilia from public and private collections will be on display, including a rare souvenir programme and other material from Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee, various Coronation and other Jubilee programmes and a range of Royal literature.
Education, Sport and Leisure Committee Convenor, Councillor Ellen Forson said: "This exhibition recalls what life was like in the county in the 1950s and I would encourage everyone to come along and see it.
"We are also hoping that people in Muckhart will bring along photographs and anything else which they might have connected with Royal visits, other Jubilee celebrations and showing life in Muckhart sixty years ago."
