Organisers of a festival celebrating the history of Crieff are counting down to the start of a fortnight-long programme of events.
Celebrate Crieff will kick off with a civic reception on Saturday evening at the former library on Comrie Street, which will house a special exhibition.
Originally designed to celebrate the lives of James and Alexander Campbell, two Crieff brothers who emigrated to the USA in the 1800s, and, after going their separate ways, ended up on opposing armies during the Battle of Seccessionville, the exhibition now takes in the wider theme of Crieff’s history during that time.
Artist June McEwan, who has coordinated the exhibition, told the Herald that she was looking forward to the public visiting.
She said: “A lot of work has gone into creating and gathering the pieces for the exhibition. We have everything from fine art to a Campbell tartan kilt from the 1800s to art and crafts by local artists and school pupils.”
