Bon Scott exhibition

Gateway to the Glens Museum in Kirriemuir, Angus, is offering visitors a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see a unique collection of memorabilia from the career of legendary AC/DC singer Bon Scott.

Avid collector Neil McDonald has been a fan of the Kirriemuir-born rocker since the 1970s. Much of Neil’s collection has never been seen in public before and he is keen that it should be displayed in Bon’s home town.

Saturday, July 9 would have been Bon’s 65th birthday and Kirriemuir will be rockin’ that night as bands take to the stage for Bon Fest 2011, a celebration of all things Bon Scott and AC/DC.

For a quieter introduction to the celebrations, fans can visit the museum to see rare, possibly unique items.

Entry to the exhibition, which runs until August 6 is free. Gateway to the Glens Museum, The Town House, 32 High Street, Kirriemuir, is open from 10am until 5pm, Monday to Saturday.
