Helpers Urgently Needed Please ...

The annual Prestonpans re-enactments, our authentic re-enactments of the '45 hereabouts, urgently need Supporters and Friends of the Battle Trust to volunteer please as assistants to the main event. This is not a call for re-enactors as such, but helpers!

The Re-enactments take place over the Saturday and Sunday, September 24th/ 25th.

The Trust needs volunteers to assist with the information booth/ BattleBus at Cuthill Park, sale of merchandise, donations cans and the like. Rewards are high. Complimentary meal vouchers at The Gothenburg and if you Walk the Riggonhead Defile at 4.45 am on Saturday, Scotch egg, an apple, soup and a great cooked breakfast at the end. That's better than any Highlander fared in 1745.

Honorary Chief Assistant will be Sharon Dabell, whose second novel for Cuthill Press is published this September!

Sharon Dabell, author and long standing volunteer with the Trust, is i/c at the BattleBus on Saturday and Sunday. She'll be signing copies of her second novel, The Onward Journey all the while - as shown below.
