The annual East Lothian Battle Weekend returns to Prestonpans.
The Battle of Prestonpans was the first significant battle in the Jacobite Rising of 1745. The Jacobite army loyal to James Francis Edward Stuart was led by his son Charles Edward Stuart (‘Bonnie Prince Charlie’) defeated the government army loyal to the Hanoverian George II led, by Sir John Cope. The victory was a huge morale boost for the Jacobites, and a heavily mythologised version of the story entered art and legend.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Battle of Prestonpans Commemorative Parade are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
