In July 2014 East Ayrshire Leisure Trust, on behalf of East Ayrshire Council, acquired one of the most important remaining artefacts relating to the Eglinton Tournament of 1839 - a silver-gilt statuette of the 13th Earl of Eglinton and his horse in their full Tournament armour.

The statue, and a selection of watercolours and shields, will be on public display at the Dick Institute (South Museum) from Thursday 28th August (Tue – Sat 11am – 5pm) to commemorate the 175th Anniversary of the Eglinton Tournament.
