Several scenes from the Netflix film were filmed in Berwick in October 2017, using the Old Bridge and the Quayside, with a number of locals appearing as extras.

The exhibition will feature a range of props from the film including a severed head, shields and swords as well as photos taken during the filming. There will also be information panels about Robert the Bruce and Berwick.
