Declaration of Arbroath Signing

Event Details

The Arbroath 2020 Committee and Hospitalfield invite you to the Webster Memorial Theatre on Wednesday 23 October for the Announcement of the Arbroath 2020 Festival Programme and the launch of the Arbroath 2020 Fund for Angus Artists.

2020 marks the 700th anniversary of the 1320 Declaration of Arbroath. In this period Arbroath Abbey and the town that grew up around it was right at the heart of Scotland’s power and politics. The Declaration travelled to Arbroath gaining support on its way until it was floated off from Arbroath Harbour to the Pope in Avignon on the 6th April 1320.

Now regarded as an eloquent statement on freedom, the document sows the seeds for the first ideas of democracy. This is our starting point for the Arbroath 2020 Festival.

Arbroath 2020 is a programme of events to celebrate the 700th anniversary of the Declaration of Arbroath. Arbroath 2020 is a six month long programme of cultural and creative activity with a commissioned programme supported by an array of activity generated through the community programme.

The Arbroath 2020 Festival website will launch on 18 October – www.Arbroath2020.com – where the programme of events can be found, along with information on special projects and how to get involved.
