Event Details

Over the course of this year, Citizen Curator has been investigating the history of gala days, with a focus on the heritage of the Leith Gala. The research, oral history and photographs gathered as part of the project have now been brought together for an exhibition at the People's Story Museum, Edinburgh.

Queens for a Day has been supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, as part of the Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology 2017. The exhibition and launch are additionally supported by Museums and Galleries Edinburgh.
