East Lothian Battle Weekends: Prestonpans 1745


Join us for a spectacular weekend of events and activities to mark the Battle of Prestonpans.  After a Grand Commemorative Parade on Saturday, a weekend of living history begins with a dramatic re-enactment of one of Charles Edward Stuart (Bonnie Prince Charlie)’s most significant battles.  Visitors to the event will be able to explore Jacobite and Hanoverian encampments and find out about 18th century life on both sides of the war. Watch events unfold from the council of war to the spectacular battle re-enactment.  There will also be the opportunity to enjoy live music, delicious local food and drink and try activities for all the family.
