The '45 in 45 minutes!

Scottish National Portrait Gallery, 17:45 PM on Thursday December 8th 2016.

The 1745 Association is giving a guided tour of the Scottish National Portrait Gallery at 1 Queen Street between 17:45 PM and 18:30 PM on Thursday December 8th 2016. The SNPG contains the finest collection of Jacobite portraits in the world, including the recently acquired Weymss portrait of Prince Charles Edward Stuart painted by Allan Ramsay at Holyrood Palace in October 1745. The tour is free and open to all, as a fascinating way to round off a day of work or afternoon of Christmas shopping.

Why did Prince Charlie embark on what seems, in retrospect, to have been such a reckless mission in 1745? And why on earth did so many Scottish clansmen rally to his cause? Michael Nevin, Chairman of The 1745 Association, will seek to unlock the solution to these mysteries through clues contained in portraits that reveal the fears, hopes and ambitions of the leaders who drove the dramatic events that unfolded in Scotland during the first half of the 18th century, whose legacy remains with us to this very day.

All are welcome on the night, meeting in the Assembly Hall at the main entrance to the SPNG. Anyone requiring further information can contact Maureen Lipscomb at katklan98@gmail.com
