In 1745 the course of Scottish and British history changed forever. A rebellion, led by Bonnie Prince Charlie in an attempt to reclaim the throne captured the hearts and minds of Scots in their thousands. What drew men and women to his side was not this 50-year-old Jacobite cause but the personal magnetism of the supposed Prince. Come along on Wednesday the 27th of November to hear how he got on.
