Angus Year of Stories Festival: July 2022

Children of Glamis Exhibition

Throughout July
Daily, 10am to 4pm
£15.50 per adult, £10 per child (including access to the Castle & Gardens)


This exciting new exhibition at Glamis Castle coincides with the 650th anniversary of the granting of the Thanage of Glamis by King Robert II to Sir John Lyon in 1372. The castle and estate at Glamis have provided a fertile environment for children to flourish throughout the ages and this exhibition will focus on their fascinating stories.

Key exhibits, coinciding with Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, are her childhood dresses, books and toys, including Mickey and Minnie Mouse from the 1930’s, dressed in wedding outfits. Portraits, photographs, drawings, embroidery, leisure pursuits, governesses, family pets and some pupils from the local village school will also be highlighted, weaving a tapestry of remarkable stories of the children of Glamis from the past to the present.
