Museum talks

THE FRIENDS of Brechin Town House Museum have announced the first programme of talks for 2013.

As usual the talks cover a wide range of local topics that include the Brechin born pioneer of radar, Sir Robert Watson-Watt, to an afternoon of music and memories with Isobel Luke and Gordon Penman.

Local photographer Peter Drahony will share his photographic archive and the history of Logie Mud House will be revealed.

Brian Gallagher, the man who made the amazingly detailed model of 1822 Brechin, will talk about how he achieves the accuracy and processes of model making.

The meetings are held on the second Tuesday of every month at 2 p.m. in the upstairs gallery of the museum - entry is free and refreshments are provided.

The first talk is on Tuesday, March 12 with Steve Nicoll, followed by further talks on April 9, May 14, June 11 and July 9.

All are welcome and the Friends hope to see some new faces as well as renewing links with those who regularly attend all the talks.

There is some good news too on seating for the venue as the Friends have purchased 40 new chairs which will remain in the museum.
