Autumn Meeting 2017

Venue – Edinburgh Grosvenor Hilton

Our Autumn conference will be held in the historic city of Edinburgh. Our venue is the Edinburgh Grosvenor Hilton, just a 10 minute walk from the heart of the city centre.The conference begins with registration and lunch on the Friday with an afternoon of lectures.

Friday night's event will be held at Edinburgh Castle where we will take a short 5 minute private coach to the venue for a viewing of the Scottish crown jewels. We will then enjoy a light '5 bowl' supper in the Jacobite room whilst we catch up with old friends.

Saturday will see a full day of lectures in the hotel with plenty of time to look around the exhibition.

In the evening we will once again take a private coach into Edinburgh for our gala dinner.

The venue this year is 'The Hub', a unique and spectacular building full of colour as befits the home of the Edinburgh International Festival.

No return transport has been arranged for either of the evening events. Feel free to explore the Royal Mile and the city centre at leisure whilst making your way back to the hotel.
