Socials


We have many "social" events, including events in members homes, and a variety of activities.

Those we current call "Socials" often comprise a talk or entertainment on a Scottish theme. 

  Autumn 2017 social:  included a dramatised performance of an excerpt from Liz Lochhead's play "Mary Queen of Scots Got Her Head Chopped Off". 

  Spring 2013 social: created the atmosphere of an afternoon tea dance with a 1920s-1940s theme. 

  Autumn 2012 social: light-hearted discussion evening entitled "Convention of the windae-hingers". 

  Autumn 2010 social: contributions on the theme of Highland Games/Highland Gatherings

  Spring 2011 social: featured a celebration of (and friendly competition between) Scotland's various world-wide exports - bagpipes, dancing, golf, tartan and whisky.

  Spring 2010 social: members' crafts and skills including sampling all the Scottish recipes that had featured as the front cover theme on the past year's newsletters.
