The Friends of Brechin Town House Museum have funded the purchase of 40 chairs that will remain in the museum to avoid borrowing chairs for each talk.

Different types were chair were trialled before the final selection was made and consideration was given to the design, durability, comfort and the colour of the padding.

The chairs will be formally presented to the museum before the start of the first talk.
