The Edinburgh City Guard are coming to Museum of Edinburgh from January 2018 on selected Saturdays. Come along and learn what it was like to be a City Guard on the streets of Edinburgh. 

The Edinburgh City Guard is a mid-18th century living history group based in the Scottish capital, bringing to life Edinburgh's red-coated civic defence force. Today the Edinburgh City Guard re-enactment group is part of Alan Breck's regiment, and members recreate not only the urban sentinels of the Guard but also a redcoat infantry unit on campaign in Scotland during the Jacobite Rising of 1745. 

The officers and sentinels of the Edinburgh City Guard look forward to welcoming you soon... 

Free, drop in any time between 10am and 2pm.
