Festival of History


We have fabulous treasure just waiting to be rediscovered, from the joyous ribaldry of a 16th century poetic slinging match to an exploration of the food and drink weíve consumed over the centuries. 

We have a huge historical canvas to clean and evaluate with the help of our most brilliant historians, who can help us take a long, cool look at our past as we stand on the threshold of a turbulent, dramatic future.

Scotlandís history festival was created to bring our history out into the streets. 

We aim to bring the history made by Scotlandís people closer to Scotlandís people.

Mercat will be participating in the next 'Previously...History Festival' in November 2014 - please explore here
