Special Exhibition: Beatrix in Birnam & Dunkeld

EXHIBITION: BEATRIX IN BIRNAM AND DUNKELD
Friday 1st July – Sunday 31st July
Daily 10am-5pm
Free Entry

In celebration of 150 years since the birth of Beatrix Potter, an exhibition of her time spent in Birnam & Dunkeld in the late 1800s, based on the journal she wrote between the ages of 15-30 years old.

The journal, written in code and which remained undeciphered until 1958, served as a documentary of her life and travels in this area.

Courtesy of Perth Museum and Dunkeld Archive, the exhibition is illustrated by photographs of the period, with some taken by Beatrix herself, and only recently discovered in Perth Museum. These are the only surviving photographs in existence attributable to Beatrix Potter and are exclusively of her stay in this area – they have never been on public display before.

The exhibition will not be available to view on the following dates...

Thursday 21st July - All Day
Friday 22nd July - All Day
Wednesday 27th July - 1-4pm

Please note, this exhibition will be in Birnam Arts’ second gallery, within a specially adapted, purpose built exhibition space on the mezzanine level.
