Our Exhibition Assistant Jocelyn Grant has produced two further videos in connection with the Hosts and Champions Exhibition currently on display at Trinity Church in Irvine.
This video provides a brief snapshot of the various tartan uniforms worn by Team Scotland over the years. Some of the official uniforms may seem rather ‘loud’ but they were designed to make an impact in a large sports arena during the opening ceremony, and I think it is fair to say they certainly achieved their objective.

This video is a lovely interview one of Irvine’s local Baton Bearers, Suzanne Fernando, who provides some background to her own experiences, why she and her daughter were chosen to carry the Queens Baton and how the relay provided a special moment for their family.
