From today's Press & Journal. Some news which is a bit lighter than what we've been used to of late; a new addition to the Gordon Highlaners Museum


The Gordon Highlanders Museum in Aberdeen has a new member on board – Bydandy.

He’s not just any Gordon Highlander, but a magical stag that can explore the regiment’s history like no other as he can travel through time.

He’s being introduced to visitors during the first week of the Easter break, April 2-10, when he will show them what the museum has to offer to families.

Bydandy will also launch his own website on Saturday, April 2. This site is designed for children to interact and enjoy the stories of the past and will offer exclusive information for parents and teachers.

That date coincides with a visit to the museum by famous comic book artist Colin MacNeil, whose work includes 2000 AD – Judge Dredd.

He has created Bydandy’s own comic, which will be handed out free to every child visiting the museum with a fee-paying adult.

Other events taking place during the week include a host of art and craft workshops and interactive sessions. All the events are free of charge, but booking may be required as demand could be high.
