Scottish Arts Club Festival 2015 Events

A number of events are taking place in the Club during the Edinburgh Festival. They include Kathy Crawford Hay and David Lyle reprising the successful "Songs of Love and War", and Club stalwarts Prof. David Purdie, David Ingram and Cameron Goodall bringing the "Titans of the Enlightenment" to life.

All bookings for Titans of the Enlightenment and Songs of Love and War performances, which are taking place at the Scottish Arts Club in August, must be booked through the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Box-office since both shows are Festival Fringe Productions open to the public and not simply Club ‘events’.  The ticket prices are £15 (or £12 for concessions as decided by the Fringe). Bookings for these performances will not be taken by Club Staff.  Members can ‘pay at the door’ on performance days.  (9th, 10th, 11th, 12th, 16th and 23rd August).

In addtion, our unique "Fringe in a Day" - now firmly established as a Festival Fringe "must" - will take place on Thursday, 6th August. 

We are privilleged to have "The Stirling Tapestries", designed by Craigie Aitchison RA for the Chapel Royal at Stirling Castle, on display, as well as jewellery from Rosie Kimber (VAS Award Winner).

This year's Festival Exhibition will be of works by Gordon Mitchell RSA.
