Talks & Exhibition: Celebrating Saltire: 75 Years of Scottish Culture
If you are looking for something to do this upcoming Bank Holiday weekend consider helping the Saltire Society celebrate its 75th anniversary. On May 28th, they will host a day of talks and exhibitions at the Trades Hall, 85 Glassford Street, Glasgow from 10:30-4:40.
Scheduled speakers include Speakers include Prof. Chris Harvie, Rab Wilson, Prof. Catriona MacDonald, Prof. Douglas Gifford, Dr Jonny Murray, Prof. Robert Crawford, Hugh Andrew, Prof. Ian Brown, Prof. Alexander Broadie, Paul Scott, Mark Buckland, John Carmichael, Joyce McMillan, Cate Newton, Ron Butlin, Dr. Wilson McLeod, Roger Kelly and Prof. Ted Cowan.
I don't know if any of the talks will be specifically about emigration, but one can hardly discuss Scottish life and culture without mentioning migration.
Admission is free but donations will be gratefully received at the venue.
For tickets please send a SASE to Sarah Mason, Celebrating Saltire Ticket, Saltire Society, 9 Fountain Close, 22 High Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1TF, Scotland.
