Get your­self ready for an­other Re­ally In­ter­est­ing Ex­pe­ri­ence

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - THE WEEKEND TICKET -

Fol­low­ing a suc­cess­ful in­au­gu­ral event last year, the Re­ally In­ter­est­ing Ex­pe­ri­ence re­turns to Blair­gowrie Town Hall next month.

The Re­ally In­ter­est­ing Ex­pe­ri­ence 2 will take place on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 14.

Last year around 300 peo­ple vis­ited the show, which fea­tured the Rat­tray Sil­ver Ar­row and part of the me­te­orite that landed lo­cally in 1917.

Many other lo­cal arte­facts were on view and this year a dif­fer­ent se­lec­tion of arte­facts will be show­cased.

A spokesper­son for the or­gan­is­ers com­mented: “In view of the re­cent pub­lic­ity about the lack of a mu­seum or her­itage cen­tre in Blair­gowrie and Rat­tray, it is hoped that this ex­hi­bi­tion will go some way to sup­port any plans for a per­ma­nent home for th­ese in­ter­est­ing lo­cal cul­tural ob­jects.”

A num­ber of lo­cal peo­ple have al­ready promised to loan items for the one-day dis­play, but or­gan­is­ers are keen to hear from other peo­ple who may have more items in lofts or at­tics that would be suit­able for dis­play.

The spokesper­son added: “What some peo­ple re­gard as junk, oth­ers would find very in­ter­est­ing, if only be­cause it’s no longer man­u­fac­tured or it is dated.

“The more items that can be ex­hib­ited the greater the im­pact and the greater the pres­sure to find a per­ma­nent home for a mu­seum and her­itage cen­tre for the town.”

Any­one wish­ing to loan items for the day should contact Gra­ham Reid on 01250 874230 dur­ing of­fice hours.
