Bannockburn Heritage Centre opens for the final time

01 March 2012

Bannockburn Heritage Centre opens for the final timeThe Bannockburn Heritage Centre has opened for the final time, on 1 March 2012, ahead of the opening of a brand new visitor centre in 2014.

The 1960s Bannockburn Heritage Centre has opened its doors for its final season, ahead of the creation of a new visitor centre on the site, due to open in 2014. The existing centre will close on 31 October 2012 and will be demolished, with temporary visitor facilities on site until the new centre opens in time for the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn.

Bannockburn property manager Scott McMaster said: 'The centre has been at the heart of Bannockburn for a long time and has
served it well. Our last year here will be a big success. There are series of living history events from "strictly swashbuckling" to academic talks. I urge everyone to see Bannockburn as it is now for the last time. We're looking forward to welcoming visitors from near and far and sharing our knowledge of this important place with them.

'We'll also be looking ahead to the amazing new facilities we'll have onsite from 2014 - it's going to be a whole new era for Bannockburn and
visitors will be blown away.'
