Circa: Live History Performance
Sunday 21st May 2017This event has passed.

It’s almost closing time at Signal Tower Museum when you run into a strange figure, dressed in period clothes and seeming confused. The mysterious character, identifying only as Circa, is horrified to discover they are in the modern era, and many of the things they remember and love are now behind glass. They have no recollection of who they are, or how they got there. Only items from the past seem to trigger memories and stories about their identity. Stay with Circa for anecdotes from the main exhibit’s time period, and travel through other exhibits, searching for clues. Make sure to avoid the security guard at closing time in order to help Circa find their identity: the ultimate treasure.

An engaging experience that will appeal to theatre lovers, history enthusiasts and families (with children aged 8+) alike.

Next to Arbroath's harbour, Signal Tower Museum is housed within the original Regency shore station for the Bell Rock Lighthouse. The museum and the lighthouse were both built 200 years ago. This maritime museum tells the story of the lighthouse, the lives of the lighthouse keepers and their families as well as Arbroath's fishing industry and maritime trade.
