Location: John Gray Centre, 15 Lodge Street, Haddington, EH41 3DX

Time: 10:00 - 17:00

Cost: £Free

East Lothian Council Museums Service and the John Gray Centre are pleased to announce three brand new displays at the John Gray Centre Museum.

All are planned to be on show for around three years as part of the permanent galleries. At a Sense of Community there is a display of costumes associated with birth, death and marriage. The role of the community in marking these milestones is showcased alongside costumes and objects.

Five truly beautiful dresses are displayed including a mid 1900s little black dress, a christening gown, two wedding dresses, one dated to 1934 and another to 1911 and finally a mourning gown dated to the 1840s. They are richly detailed and amongst the most precious items held in the Museums Collections.

A historic banner from the Craighall Friendly Society highlights the story of Friendly Societies in East Lothian and the vital role they played in providing some insurance against hard times. The banner is beautiful and fragile. It was created around 1831 and shows symbolic figures and text hand painted on a gold silk backing.

This is the first time it has been on display since major specialist conservation funded by Museums Galleries Scotland. In the section, Life and Work a new display case highlights stories from East Lothian’s food and drink industry alongside objects and documents from local producers. It includes the story of a local market gardener who whose business was so successful that he loaned a large sum to the burgh of Musselburgh.

Talon: The Complete History Tour 2016

Date: 29th Sep 2016

Location: The Brunton, Musselburgh

Time: 19:30

Cost: £21 (£20)

Talon presents a brand new production of their award winning ‘Best of Eagles’

This stunning production is a show of two halves, with the first half delivering a world class laid back vibe with an in depth look at the early Eagles roots before visiting the brilliant ‘Hell Freezes Over’, and going right through to the critically acclaimed ‘Long Road Out of Eden’. The second half arrives in style with a complete change of mood and pace, featuring those classic ‘Eagles greatest hits’ from their timeless back catalogue. Talon is a phenomenon, and they have truly transcended the tag of ‘tribute’. They have become a brand name in their own right who are not only revered by their peers, respected by the music industry, but are also dearly loved by their massive and expanding fan base that together have become a family. The ability of Talon to evolve and go from strength to strength in delivering bigger and better shows year on year, continues once again with what promises to be an Event.

Talon tickets always sell quickly, so early booking is advised with this concert.

“Talon performs the songs of the Eagles with reverence and super talent” – Jack Tempchin, Eagles hit songwriter
“When it comes to recreating the legendary sounds of the Eagles, Talon are unequalled” – Classic Hits Radio
