Share your photos of local industrial life at museum event in Prestonpans

Residents of the area are invited to come along to a free and unique Pies and Pictures event to help shape the future of one of the oldest industrial sites in Scotland.

You’ll be able to have a hot pie in our themed pit canteen and anyone coming along is encouraged to bring along their own photographs of the area past and present, especially if they are related to working or community life.

Photographs will be projected around the canteen and stories will be told and celebrated within a unique atmosphere. Families will be encouraged to dress-up and take a selfie in our Prestongrange Time Machine. There will also be the opportunity to have your memories and stories recorded for posterity.

This event is also a great opportunity to help steer the development of Prestongrange Museum as a place which can be celebrated by the community.

The event will be taking place on Sunday 26th November from 12.30pm – 4.30pm at Prestonpans Town Hall, High Stree, Prestonpans.  Come along and have a pie with us!

We have also just launched an online survey and would like to hear your views! The survey can be found at:
