Live Audio Described Tour: Tartan
Sunday, 13 August 2023
Join us for a live audio described tour of our latest major exhibition.
Specifically adapted for our blind and partially sighted visitors, explore this groundbreaking exhibition that celebrates the global story of a unique pattern.
Experience dazzling objects from around the world from the high fashion of Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen to Jackie Stewart's racing helmet, from the portrait of rugby legend Doddie Weir to the MacBean tartan which rocketed to the moon. See tartan worn by Bonnie Prince Charlie and Bay City Rollers trousers handmade by a lifelong fan, together with the indigenous textiles of Indian Madras and the humble Scottish shortbread tin.
Meet downstairs at the welcome desk. We recommend arriving 10 minutes before the start.
