Staff at Gateway to the Glens Museum in Kirriemuir are delighted to announce Neil McDonald, one of the UK’s leading collectors of rare AC/DC memorabilia, will be available to meet fans in the museum during the 2014 Bonfest Weekend on August 16 and 17.

From around the world, fans of AC/DC and their late lead singer, Bon Scott, will converge on Kirriemuir for the full weekend festival.

Ronald Belford ‘Bon’ Scott was born in Forfar on July 9, 1946 and spent his early childhood years in Kirriemuir.

The Gateway to the Glens Museum’s 2014 Bon Scott display runs throughout August, from August 5 to 30.

Neil McDonald is a long-time friend of the Gateway to the Glens Museum, having loaned a host of objects for museum exhibitions.

Many of these items have never been viewed by the general public, prior to being displayed in the museum.

Neil will be available to talk to fans from 1 to 4 p.m., both days, (August 16 and 17).

The museum will have extended opening on the Sunday from 12 noon.

The free museum display can be viewed during normal opening hours, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday to Saturday. Admission is free.

Kirriemuir Gateway to the Glens Museum is situated in Kirriemuir Town House, a building at the heart of Kirriemuir since its construction in 1604. The Museum opened in 2001 after the building was carefully restored and conserved.
