Andrew Carnegie’s inspirational life story is well known throughout Scotland and beyond. On the year that marks the centennial of the death of Andrew Carnegie and 150 years since The National Wallace Monument first opened, Kirke Kook, Manager and Curator of the Carnegie Birthplace Museum, will discuss Carnegie’s links with the popular Stirling landmark. This includes Carnegie’s strong ties to Scotland’s National Bard, Robert Burns, whose bust Carnegie generously donated to the Monument in 1886. Kirke will also bring into light other artworks funded by Carnegie, and how his contributions helped to shape Scottish identity, in Scotland and the USA.
Tickets for the evening lecture cost £5 (£2 for The National Wallace Monument members). Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a seat as a limited number of tickets are available.
The lecture will be held in Legends Coffee House at The National Wallace Monument. This area is fully accessible. There will be no access to the inside of the Monument during the event.
