History was brought to life for Primary 6 pupils from Dunbar Primary School when they paid a visit to the John Gray Cultural Centre in Haddington .

The event was run in conjunction with National Libraries Week which comes to an end this Saturday, February 8. The youngsters took a step back in time to learn more about the Jacobite rebellions of the eighteenth century, which they are currently studying.

They also got the chance to discuss the Criminal Register of Haddington which dates from 1894 to 1901, making up their own crimes and punishment.

During their tour of the John Gray Cultural Centre, which also has a museum, they saw the library and Star Room which seats 60 people and is used for talks, meetings and community activities.
