THE Liberator, a founding father of the United States and one of England's most loved writers are among the famous characters whose faces will be seen in Tarbert for the town's Heritage Week celebrations.
Daniel O'Connell, Benjamin Franklin and Charlotte Bronte will be brought to life in Tarbert this week in a number of re-enactments. There's nothing random about the choice of historic figures because, strangely enough, each of them visited the town over 150 years ago.
Tarbert's Heritage Week kicks off at 8pm this Friday, August 24, at the Bridewell as the Tarbert Historical Society casts a long eye back over local history.
The following day local actors will be dressed in character to bring to life events at the Bridewell during the dark days of the British Empire . The re-enactment of the judicial and prison system in the 19th Century will be staged at 11am, 12noon, 2pm and 3pm.
On Sunday, O'Connell, Franklin and Bronte return to Tarbert House for the John F Leslie Woodland Walk. All events are free of charge.
