A free exhibition bringing the stories and memories of the famous Nobel Explosives plant back to life will be coming to Irvine’s Townhouse this month.

Residents can take a look at the history of the Ardeer factory, the products that were made and the people who worked there with a wealth of artwork, objects, interviews and photographs to celebrate this huge part of local history.

Nobel Times will run from Monday, May 27 to Friday, September 27.
